Hey guys last night I replaced my Arctic Freezer 7 Pro with a 212 EVO. The installation was a real pain IMO as it was hard to get the back bracket on while having the motherboard in my other hand. So I am trying to figure out why my computer is running so slow. When I pulled the CPU out to clean the Thermal Paste off some got on the socket so I tried to clean it up and one of the 775 pins got bent. I just pressed it back in and put the cpu in to seat it and pulled it back out and it looks like it was never bent now. So after I got the cooler on and the computer rebuilt, it is running so slow. Temps are 15 C cooler than before but this shouldn't make it slower, if anything it should make it faster! Lol. Anyway just trying to figure this out. My overclock is still there even though the CMOS battery is claiming its dead which I was happy about because I didn't remember all of my settings. Im building a new Z170 PC soon anyway but just having fun playing with this one. What could cause the slowness and application hangs guys? Thanks!
