New Gaming Computer is running bad, whats wrong?

For not so long ago i bought a new gaming computer, built it with a friend of mine, installed a legit windows 7 64bits and the newest grafic drivers. Everything seems fine and i try to run 3Dmarks, and its as it should be but when i came to the physics test i got very low fps. I read somewhere that this is a bug on the 3Dmarks End, and not on my comp so i stop worry about it. I got into Age of conan and maxxed it with around 60 fps.

But as i play on i dont seem to be able to get the "low physic test" out of my mind and my suspicion grows.

Now and then when i start mozilla or entering a folder it lags a bit. At the beginning when i played conan i could no longer play with shadows because i got this intense lag, even with the newest grafic drivers, but now i even get very bad Fps drops to around 20~30fps and i don't get whats wrong (even when i play on lowest graphics) ive also tried to play The witcher 2, but since it doesnt seem to support SLI, i can't really compare with it : S BF 3 realse is tomorrow, and i really want to be able to play it, please help out!

Here is my new computer ;

CPU Core i5 2500K

Corsair 8GB (KIT) DDR3 [INET] 1600MHz/1.5V/XMS3


PSU Corsair TX 850W V2 /80+ Bronze

MK MSI P67A-GD55 Socket 1155, P67, ATX B3

I got about 4 fans and a better CPU fan then the original. My grafic cards is running on 25~40C, but i dont know how to check on the cpu but could that really be the problem? Please help me to find out whats wrong : S (sorry for my bad english)

Hi Leathershredder, Posted Image

As you have fitted your own CPU fan and heat-sink. over heating can occur if the TIM was not installed correctly. The temp could slowly climb and reach a point where the CPU will start to throttle back to protect itself.

Consult your Mobo user manual, chapter 3, page 17.

CPU/ System Temperature, CPU FAN/ SYS FAN 1/ 2 Speed, CPU Vcore, CPU IO,
CPU SA, DRAM Voltage, 3.3V, 5V, 12V
