  3. New fx 8350 really slow, any ideas?
2 years ago#1
Just bought an fx 8350, and although not happy about it I cant convince the store manager to let me trade it in.

I upgraded from an fx 6100 and its slower

Even right clicking something on the desktop it takes 3 seconds for the right-click menu to appear.....

Firefox has been super slow and crashing constantly

Even seems like my download speeds are slow

Here are my specs

fx 8350 OC @ stock speeds
windows 8.1
corsair 760 watt PSU
gtx 760
16 gb RAM

thanks guys.

really sucks when you buy a new processor and it processes things slower than the lost one.

Is it overheating/have sufficient cooling/thermal paste correctly applied?

Yeah. That shouldn't be happening. Either you got bad hardware, something isn't installed/set up correctly, or something's screwy with the Windows install.

Check BIOS settings on MOBO and check the manufacturers website for a new firmware update.

What is your mobo if you don't mind us asking, a lot of AM3/3+ are only designed for processors up to the FX 8150.

Make sure your motherboard can handle a 125w tdp.

Sounds to me like you never installed the cooler/paste properly. That would explain your loud fan and slow speeds.

What are your temps?

My guess is the heat sink isn't seated correctly and it's overheating/throttling.
