You won't see this unless you are paying attention to your screen during a Prime95 test. If you are using IBT, the time column will tell you if throttling happen, because it will show that loop taking longer to complete.

Thank you for the reply. Well that loop is constantly spinning so i think its my ram... do you recommend i OC my ram? or get better ram?

This is the ram I use is it any good? And can it be OC? If so how can I accomplish this?

In my experience RAM is never an issue with sluggishness.

Its always either a throttle CPU, overworked CPU or poor/incorrect video driver.

i agree with flyin15sec. It's improbable that the RAM is causing sluggishness.

Try one thing. Raise the vcore by 2 notches. See if the sluggishnest persists or not. If it goes away, the vcore was probably too low (and Prime needed more hours to show instability). If not, i don't know...
Did you make fresh windows installation? Did you install the Microsoft patch for improved scheduling? (the park cored patch doesn't affect speed, but the scheduling does).

Yes I did I replaced my MOBO and freshly installed windows to provent this type of stuff.. also did all the updates. my pc take about 2min to fully boot.. is this normal? BTW i dont have an SSD..

2 minutes??? That's too long! Do you have some uber heavy antivirus and a gazillion of programs at startup? Your hard disk is SATAIII after all. You should be under 40 seconds IMHO. I don't know what to tell you, but there is something strange happening in your computer.

Try to open a command prompt (with admin rights) and run:

sfc /verifyonly

See whether it tells you that you have windows file corruption or not.

I’m wondering if I installed windows 7 wrong when i did a clean install... I think I’m just going to reinstall windows when I get home. Can someone please tell me what’s the proper way to do a completely clean install to see if issues go back to normal?

Well, you must boot from the WIn7 disc and install from scratch... Then put the motherboard drivers (personally i leave the Microsoft AHCI drivers, i don't use the AMD one). Make sure that in BIOS your SATA is set to AHCI before installing.

After installing, also install this updated patch for FX CPUS:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2645594

It increases my FX6300 WEI by 0.1. There is also another (core-unparking), but it has been proven that has no benefit.

The patch above, doesn't come with normal Windows Update. You have to put it yourself.

The other patch is this:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2646060

But as i said, it has been proven (there is even a youtube video about it), that brings no benefit, on the contrary increases power consumption at idle. I never install it myself.

okay.. so i did a little research on AHCI and it looks like this will only work if you have an SSD or will i see a change in performance in my HDD? Do you mind telling me how i go about changing this setting in my bios.?
