After installing my new build, I reinstalled Windows, all my programs and games. However, when I load some games (Dirt 3, BF3, Skyrim) it won't load all the way through and I will experience SEVERE slowdown to a point where I can do anything except hard-restart.
Fifa 12 will take multiple times of me going into Origin and clicking "play" in order for it work.
I have checked all my connections and ran an anti-virus program to no avail. I did change some of the startup settings in "MSconfig" but I don't think that would affect anything. It is ONLY games that are affected.
Does anyone have any ideas? Or am I going to have to reinstall windows?

Tried to reinstall all the games that I was having trouble with. The problems was not happening with BF3, but then it started to. Dirt 3 the problem still happens.
It could be a heat problem, so I am going to check that. It is possible that I may have put too much thermal paste on and if so I will clean the CPU with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. Not sure why it is only happening with games and not when I am doing 5 things at once (running a movie, audio, browsing the web, etc.)
