Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Core I7 950 CPU
Nvidia GTX 460 GPU
ASUS P6X58D-E MOBO
1st thing I noticed while booting up was a warning saying my CPU temperature is too high, and pretty much to proceed at your own risk. Checked my CPU temperatures, they run at about 63 C just browsing the internet, about 69-70 C when playing a game (CS:GO). GPU Temperature is about 50 C. For whatever reason it's only showing 2 cores in Speedfan, not 4, both of which are about 70-75 C.
2nd thing I noticed is a severe lack of performance in games. This is why I reformatted to begin with. I have high FPS (in CS:GO about 150 max settings), yet the game runs choppy as if I'm at 25 FPS.
And the newest thing that it wants to do is act like a bag of *** at startup. When it's time to display the login screen, it instead goes black on the monitor, and about 15 seconds later when it finally decides it wants to cooperate, it sluggishly shows me my login screen, which doesn't let me type at first. Once I'm finally logged in it's choppy and sluggish until finally it decides it wants to let me use my desktop. If I let it fall asleep, it will not wake up. Just stays black. Have to do a hard boot.
So what could this be? Thanks ahead of time.
