[motherboard] Installation problems

I had a ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GEN3 with Intel Core i5 - 2500K 3.3Ghz and 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM

Kept the RAM, replaced MoBo with Asus Sabertooth Z77 and CPU with Intel Core i7 3770K Quad-Core 3.5Ghz CPU (UNLOCKED)

All the other hardware in the computer stayed the same

Installed newest drivers from ASUS site, and this computer is actually slower?!?!

Drivers were installed in following order, if it matters:

1) Intel Chipset drivers

2) Video card

3) Network

The rest, I just went trough device manager, and manually updated drivers.

My CPU, RAM and graphics scores in WEI are lower, but I can actually see that a lot of programs are opening slower, and windows boot takes longer.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

You will get best results from reloading the OS - I assume XP or Win 7.

Did you uninstall all the old drivers, etc? I'd imagine doing an upgrade like you did, a fresh install of Windows would have net the best results.

Ah crap. I fail at reading.

So it's still running slow even after the new install?

Yeah...

I usually don't rely much on WEI, but it actually takes longer for windows to boot, and Corel Photo Paint takes about 15 seconds to open.
It used to take....none...
I haven't installed another programs, so I cant compare, but I will let you know

Have you checked for any Firmware updates for your OCZ drive?

I upgraded to v1.5 awhile back on my Vertex 4.

You gotta have a driver/firmware problem somewhere. You should be flying along with that setup.

Is the system ram 1600? or 1333? and using xmp? shrug

For windows and video card. Did you change the power saving settings? I know Nvidia Control Panel has one.

For the bios, Primary Display. Is it set to PEG? Have you disable iGPU? On the NB PCIe Configuration, set it to Gen3 for both.

For the Mainboard, You did plug the video card close slot to the CPU right? PCIe x16_1 slot?

Also for the mainboard, you did use the ESP12v 4pin? Instead of just 2pin. Upper left corner of the mainboard.

I'd check this also.

On my first boot up with my Z77 board, the MB defaulted the RAM to 1333. I had t manually set it to 1600.

Once you done with that list.

Download CPUz and GPUz, and start taking picture.

Oh, for the cpu.. is it default setting? Disable Speedstep.

Usually the BIOS on these new boards are setup pretty nice at default. You really shouldn't have to touch much at all. I'm just going off experience with my Gigabyte board. I don't know about Asus.

I'd go through BIOS settings with a fine tooth comb and check everything over.

Wasn't the i5 initially faster than the i7 for a basic user?
