Back in December 2009 I bought a computer from iBuypower. I have just recently noticed how slow the install is because I got a new copy of Windows 7 for my 13inch MacBook Pro(2.66 Core2, 4GB RAM) and it seems to run games faster and be more stable. Could it just be a early version of 7 that is causing the problem? or is it hardware?

iBuyPower Specs:
Core i7 OCed 3.2GHz
12GB RAM at 1600Mhz
ATI 5850 1GB

Your over clock maybe causing it to slow down.

Heat can cause issues with Hardware, and can you post pictures of the insides of your case.

Oh, k

I don't really want to put pictures up as my bandwidth is small...but it is a NZXT PanzerBox, and its pretty crowded in there, ill put it back at stock and test it. This seams to be a good point because when I had it at 3.6 it was slightly slower.

I have a CoolerMaster V8 as the cooler. If I get a better cooler(CoolerMaster V10) would that help any?
