Computer not running at optimized levels

 

gtx 1060 3gb
Intel core i5 6500
8gb ram
mini-ITX H110
Windows 10
Hi, I could use some help on this. My computer isnt running as it should. I just installed a new mother board, graphics card, and Processor recently and ran very well for a bit, now after a month or so, it's slowed down quite a bit. Playing a game like fallout 4 ran very smoothly at first, now im around 30 average Fps for some reason.

I scanned for viruses, using roguekiller, nothing.
In game, the processor ran at an average of 60% and the GPU never went over 40%. I dont know if these are normal, but they seem like they shouldn't be.

I was thinking of restoring to factory and/or installing a new hard drive. The one im currently using shoots up to 100% ussage a lot and is around six years old I think.
Everything is up to date.

Re: Computer not running at optimized levels

If your hard drive is near 100% capacity, that is probably your problem.

Re: Computer not running at optimized levels

Windows 10 does have a problem with 100% disk usage at random times, there are some start-up items you can try disabling to help via the services manager window such as SuperFetch and BITS.

Best of luck

Re: Computer not running at optimized levels

how are your temps while running those games? Also is windows 10 trying to constantly install a cumulative update in background?
if you are unsure you can use a program called HW monitor because excessive heat can cause issues too.

Re: Computer not running at optimized levels

Exactly what I would have recommended.

Services like Windows Search, Superfetch can help with Disk Usage if disabled.

Else, old school tricks like having a set size for the pagefiles for example can reduce the constant usage.
