New Built Desktop sooo SLOW

Posted 25 January 2012 - 03:20 PM

So I have recently built a desktop with the following specificiations:
NZXT M59 Classic Series Case
ASUS P8Z68-V Motherboard
Intel i7 2600K Quad Core Processor @ 3.40Ghz
Corsair TX650 Power Supply
GeForce GTX560Ti 1024MB GDDR5
Intel Solid State 510 Series 120GB Drive
Seagate 1 TB HDD
Corsair H60 CPU Liquid Cooler
8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM

Here is my problem. My computer gets sooo SLOW!! I have the CPU usage desktop gadget for Windows in the upper right corner. I will literally have Chrome open and that is it and my memory will be at about 25% use and my CPU will be at 14 to 17% use. I don't understand how the processor I have is giving me this much grief. My mouse lags across the screen. I also have had the blue screen come up but that can mean various things I know. But it says performing memory dump and the computer shuts off. Yet I am able to turn my computer back on right afterwards and everything seems fine. I was going to take it to Geek Squad but they charge 75 dollars for a diagnostic. Way tooo much money! If anyone knows anything or anyone who can help me figure this thing out I would greatly appreciate it.

What OS are you using?
Take a screen shot of the first tab in CPUZ and post that.
What was the BSOD saying?
What does the memory dump say?
What temperature is your chip running at?
Do you have all the power rails plugged in and working?
Are you using this in a raid?
Which drive is your primary?

- OS: Windows 7 Professional
- Attached is the Photo of the CPU-Z
- I don't know what the BSOD explicitly said but like I said before all I saw was memory dump and the blue screen. Is there a log that they keep that information in so I can get you more information on it.
- I am using the Solid State Drive for all my programs but I am saving all my documents and everything else on the HDD.
- My CPU temp is running around 86 degrees F and my MB temp is 71.6 degrees F.
- My SATA Mode for my solid state drive is in the AHCI mode. I did not set up a RAID.
- What do you mean by power rails? Like the power connections from the power supply to the solid state drive?

I would take a look around in event viewer and figure out what your blue screen error was all about.

I'd check the memory. Windows 7 comes with a memory tester on the install disk, so start with that. Or you can create a boot disk for MemTest and check it with that.

um, i thought every BSOD had a memory dump?

ps, run WEI and give us a screenie.

pss, no one tell me WEI is retarded, we're troubleshooting here, not benchmarking. WEI is great for identifying driver issues.

Okay your right every BSOD has memory dump. I found out what it was about. It says at the top Driver_Power_State_Failure. Can anyone help me determine what this is?

You mean like plugging that into a search engine of choice and getting this result?

I'm not an idiot. I did that and got to the first screen but that doesn't exactly help me with determining which of my drivers is messing up. Thanks...

I wasn't sure.. Yes.. the error doesn't tell you "which" driver.. you need to go through them all.. or at least a majority of them until you correct the problem. Clearly hitting up the major ones (video card, bios, mice, sound, etc) would be good but then there's SATA drivers, cpu drivers, and bridge drivers you can poke at.
