I hope you won't shy away from sharing your future problems with us.

We love to provide useful information!

You need more RAM homie. RAM loads the functions before your CPU computes the functions. Your RAM can't load enough data to keep pace with your CPU. but I already know you're going to buy more RAM.

He does indeed need another 8GB ram stick for Dual-Channel Memory and will soon meet the newer upcoming 16GB standard. Although... It will not be the key solution to his current FPS problems or the key to way more FPS and should only provide up to 4-7% Perf. Boost.

Well, I try.

Also, did you start a new account?

Could've sworn there was an Ingram with more posts than that.

Are you the Ingram of old? Or am I insane?

Then why is he upgrading the components of his system if he has no clue what he's doing and apparently didn't do any basic homework my 9 year old cousin could do?

 

You don't replace the wheels of your car without informing yourself before how it works either.

100% agree with fresh windows install first. 

 

I upgraded an AMD 8320 to an Intel 6700k and didn't get any improvement until I did a fresh install. Worked wonders.

Did you run windows sysprep before you swapped motherboards??

When you installed your new components did you reinstall windows? Drivers up to date?

no i haven't . GPU is up to date tho . 

 

This is what I saw on page 1 that makes me think he needs to go back an do a fresh install of Windows. It's news to me that you can actually get away with upgrading your mobo and not have to do it anymore. Windows has come a long way with sorting itself out but that shouldn't be happening, especially if people expect their machine to run happily.

Did you run windows sysprep before you swapped motherboards?? This is designed by Microsoft specifically for "porting" your current install to new hardware.

It basically replaces all drivers with windows drivers like when you first install the OS when building new system.  Then it asks you to install all your drivers for your hardware.  No need to do complete reinstall.

Why post this topic without doing these steps first dude

Run windows sysprep, shut down , start and install mobo drivers etc.

Nope never heard of it (wouldn't trust it anyway). Always bunged in the OS disc and done it oldschool, marveling at how much faster the PC is than the previous build.

Sysprep is specifically for hardware replacement!!  It removes ALL non windows drivers etc (mobo, gpu etc) and replaces them with the Windows default drivers same as when you do a fresh install.  Then you shut down PC and replace your hardware (motherboard, cpu etc).  Powerup and windows goes into fresh install mode just like when you do a fresh install, exact same thing just all your software is still installed.  You install your new mobo drivers etc , video driver and so on.

No need to wipe out drive to do clean install.  Read up on it.  I wish I new about this sysprep couple years ago. would have saved me a lot of trouble reinstalling all my programs.

I did go and check it out and I do agree it can save a lot of time. However over the life of your current build you accumulate a lot of debris from install/uninstall etc. It used to be the case where people use to install Windows every year as a bit of a 'spring clean' because their machine had slowed down so much. Now we have utilities like CCleaner the need to 'spring clean' is greatly reduced. Even so I bet I can find lots of debris in the form of files, folders and registry entries all the wonderful utilities still leave behind. Take off and nuke the site from orbit, it's the only way to sure.......sorry, clean install.

May be he wants to learn how to do it.

Learning By doing.

Make sure you have your GPU in the right PCI slot! If you do not, your motherboard will give you low bandwith to your GPU! 

 my thread. I had a problem with my GPU being in the wrong PCI Slot but fixed it to the correct one. (My GPU lock broke off on the correct one, but i fixed it).

Read the whole topic we already dicussed about it couple of Pages before.

We all should be silent now and wait for a responses from the OP. There is much input to read for him. :-)

Nope. I'm sure there is such better ways of achieving the same result, just saying a fresh install worked for me.

That's your paranoia.  Delete registry entries/folder from old programs after uninstalling.  Delete saved files etc.  Get a cheap registry cleaner if your not comfortable working with your registry.  Point is windows sysprep was made specifically for hardware changes like swapping motherboards etc.

Sysprep does the same thing just keeps all your programs installed.

Oldschool very nice advice from you but fresh reinstall would be the best. OP still has a SSD lying around so you would really want to use that too.

 

OP could do Sysprep and would definitely keep his Windows activated. Probably does the trick with the software issues, but if it was my system id go for fresh install on this awesome SSD regardless. SSD speed is something i dont want to miss. Why somebody would buy one and not build it in right away is confusing my brainz. All of them.

 

Also if performance still isnt at its full potential you will definitely have to wipe the system anyway to make 100% sure software is not the issue, what i still doubt.

 

ALSO LETS WAIT FOR OP HE ALREADY HAS TO READ A WHOLE NOVEL.

Some may say it's paranoia but I say I don't want that dang shite hanging around messing up my new build. SSD storage space is precious. Your drive will be littered with stuff you don't need after a while no matter how many hours you spend chasing it down. I am only to happy to get down into cleaning up the registry but getting it all is virtually impossible. There is nothing quite so nice as getting into a bed with clean sheets.

 

Now if my machine was a just few months old and i changed mobo I'd probably try the sysprep route no you lot have opened my eyes to its existence. The op here though went from Win7, upgraded to Win10 and then swapped out hardware. Only Bill knows want crap was dragged along the with the upgrades.

This MB is not the best for gaming PC including a GTX 980ti beast. So you should also consider (before buying  RAM) to buy a gaming mainboard which supports DDR4 RAM with higher frequencies. Your mainboard supports max. 1866 MHz RAM....

 

For e.g. this board: https://de.msi.com/Motherboard/Z170A-KRAIT-GAMING.html#hero-specification

 

It supports DDR4 memory up to 3600MHz (overclocked)....you don't need that I'd think, but about 2400MHz memory would be good.

 

It makes no sense to buy a GTX 980ti and insert it on a board on which it can't deploy it's full potential. Even a GTX970 would be overpowered on your current mainboard I guess.

 

Your CPU, GPU and PSU are good. Mainboard and RAM needs to be upgraded.

 

Edit: sorry, this link would be better for you I think ^^ https://msi.com/Motherboard/Z170A-KRAIT-GAMING.html#hero-overview

aslong you can't understand german :D

i dont get paid alot of money so saved money where i could . ill get this mb when i can for sure tho . got any ram u recommend ?

Well...this MB was just an example. But I'm asking me, why you buy a GTX 980ti and don't have a gaming MB. It's almost you build a V8 with 500hp in a compact car and doesn't change the chassis suspension ^^

 

No, I don't have any RAM for you. Just google for it and check out some tests and so on. It also depends which MB you buy (for e.g. if you want to buy a MB, google for which RAM works good with this MB.
