I am trying to figure out why my desktop is so outperformed by my laptop. I built my desktop a year ago and had my laptop built around a year ago. Shortly after I built by desktop I spilled some water on it and it shut down. I took it to a computer repair shop to have them restart my desktop and they just checked to make sure that turning it back on wouldn't cause any more damage. I got my laptop shortly after this so I did not use my desktop very much because I was playing with my laptop. I noticed that my laptop seriously outperforms my desktop. I am trying to figure out if there is some water damage to my desktop, or if this performance difference should be expected from the different processors. 



CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40 GHz

Installed Ram: 16 GB



CPU: Intel Core i7-4800MQ CPU @ 2.70 GHz

Installed RamL 8 GB


One of my friends thinks that the ram in my Desktop could be damaged from the water. Would my desktop still even be able to function if the ram was destroyed? 


Here are some comparisons between the two systems. 

The processor for the desktop


the processor for the laptop



Once again, the Laptop seriously outperforms the desktop. One way I noticed is when I play League of Legends on my laptop the FPS is in the 200s and when I play it on my desktop it is in the 50s.

Another game that I notice this on is Europa Universalis IV. The game is played on the best graphics and extremely smooth on my laptop. The desktop can only manage the worst graphics setting and the game is laggy.

We would need more information but I suspect video drivers are your problem and windows updates.

Do you have a video card on your desktop machine?
