A bad HD can cause blue screens and other odd things but I can see your point.  Perhaps a program that bypassed Windows by booting from a CD or USB might offer more insight:

I see they have a video memory stress test as well as some cpu stress tests.  You might see if any of them show a problem.  There are also some BIOS programs that let you look at the BIOS settings a bit more closely.

I did the RAM memory(mdsched.exe) test and CPU stress test(Prime95), both found no issues.

How do you measure your FPS?

 

Can you get a second opinion?

 

  1. NVIDIA GeForce Experience

If you have recent NVIDIA graphics hardware that supports ShadowPlay, you can also enable an in-game FPS counter via the NVIDIA GeForce Experience applicaiton. Launch it, click the Preferences tab, select ShadowPlay, choose the FPS Counter option, and select a location on your screen for the FPS counter.

I am actually using Shadowplay FPS counter to see the FPS in-game. Else I wouldn't really notice the performance loss without it.
And what did you mean with the second opinion? Why would I enable my FPS now?

Just wondered if the method of measuring FPS was reliable.  Since you are using Shadowplay already then try FRAPS

Ah it's not just FPS counter, I really feel the performance drops, it goes slower, moves slower, loads slower(Probably HDD here). Everything is less smoother and slower in general

Go back to the MSI page and download each driver and program and try to install it.  The fact that the xboost doesn't work implies that something MSI related is missing/not working.

I downloaded MSI live , it auto detects stuff to download. I also looked for motherboard drivers there, couldn't find the one I have, mine is DG3+, there was some ending differently.
But as I installed MSI live, it auto detected my rig, I got this message:

You might look at:

 

http://www.overclock...-asrock-edition

 

It gives the options for an Asrock bios.  Appears that it may be a bit more complicated than the average bios.  Does it show that the CPU speed is overclocked?  Are any of the other options set to non default vales?

Everything is set to default now but I have made screenshots of almost every BIOS setting, images below:

Try disabling Cool  n Quiet on the last screen I think that slows things down so it stays cool & quiet.
