Performance decline with switch to Windows 10

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Short story. My SSD died so I bought a new SSD and figured since I had to do a clean install that now was the time to switch to Win 10. Boot times are sweet and the overall feel is smooth. The problem area lies in gaming. My FPS are about 1/3 what they were when I ran Win 7. Oddly enough when I watch my performance in Afterburner it also shows my graphics cards at about 30 to 35% usage. When I look at my 3DMark Fire Strike scores they are also 1/3 what they were with Win 7. The only thing I changed was my SSD and OS.

System Info:
MSI Gaming 7 Z97 Mainboard
4790K CPU
16GB Gskill 1800 Ram
Crossfire Sapphire 7970 Graphics
Mushkin Reactor 256GB SSD
Corsair TX 750 PSU
Windows 10 Pro 64

Fire Strike scores:
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5349781 Windows 7 Pro
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/7099681 Windows 10 Pro

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what this could be?

Make sure all your drivers are installed, chipset drivers or any other drivers are up to date; check device manager.

Already did that. Also uninstalled and reinstalled Graphics drivers. I am really left scratching my head here.

Just in case anyone is interested... The problem I encountered was not a software issue.
I have been having main board issues and it ended failing AGAIN, already repaired by MSI once. I needed a Main board quick and decided to go with an ASRock Fatality Z97X based off of the many positive reviews I read. A step down from my Gaming 7 but it is performing how it should and I am no longer experiencing low frame rate issues.

Problem Solved.

What's with motherboards failing so frequently these days? I've been out of the tech world for a few years now, but i never remember seeing motherboards fail so often as i'm seeing reported recently.

I think many years ago, not so many people were able or interested in buying such stuff and now that's common. Also, recent MoBos have more features and more complicated, maybe that explain a bit your feeling.

Perhaps that's just it, simply seeing a larger number of people buying motherboards, therefor there appears to be a larger failure rate simply because there's a larger pool of people.

That being said, i've ran a good 15+ motherboards through my life, none have ever died on me. I've even dropped one from a considerable height without issue. Worst i've had, which only happened recently, was a motherboard with both IDE and SATA had the IDE port break.
