Hello there, I'm new to this forum and thought I'd get some insight into a few issues I'm kind of annoyed/confused about.
First off, I'm a techie and well aware of most ways to increase speed and fix the problems I seem to be having.
However, I must be missing something that one of you might know, and I'd appreciate your input.
I built my own PC with the parts that I have displayed on the pictures below.
I'm confused about why my computer is slow even though similar laptops/PCs with equal to less powerful hardware perform
quicker and more efficient than mine. I have used CCleaner, defragmented, etc.. and performed all the required and suggested
operations that are supposed to make a PC faster/cleaner. If you can let me know if maybe my parts don't complement each other in a way that should, or something completely out of left field that I have overlooked, I would love that.
Lastly, I'm concerned that my CPU is heating up more than usual. Once, my computer shut down because of excessive heat in my CPU.
I cleaned my PC and CPU, changed the thermal paste, etc... It has not shut down since. However, it increases in temperature rather quickly when I start even a simple program such as VLC for video viewing, or my web browser (Chrome).
I have posted a picture with my CPU Temperature running virtually on idle, with only google drive and sticky notes running on idle.
Let me know what kind of changes you think I should make! Thank You!
