    So this week I have changed my motherboard, graphics card and PSU, when I installed the graphics drivers and tried to play a game like counter strike go on lowest settings I am getting 10 fps when i see someone on the screen but also my pc works very slow. Also using core temp I have realised that my cpu temp is around 90-100.

    My spec:
    Motherboard : asus p8z77-v lx2
    GPU: geforce gtx 660 twin frozr oc
    PSU: CX Series™ Modular CX600M ATX Power Supply
    Processor: intel core i7-2600 cpu @ 3.40ghz

    What could be the problem?

    it looks like something is wrong with the mounting of the cooler for your CPU. it looks like your CPU is downclocking like mad when you are using it.
    are you using the stock cooler for the i7 ? have you applied thermal paste on it ? have you tightened the screws for the cooler ? have you connected the power cable for the fan of the cooler ?

    i am sorry but i have to ask lot things to make sure.

    I think you just answered your self
    Check the things Tom_mili suggested or try to reseat the CPU cooler and apply new thermal paste

    on some forums I read that apparently temperature doesn't affect performance so I guess it does?

    When it goes that high it will. It is most likely throttling to try and reduce the temperature.

    But yes as the others said, check your CPU cooler and reinstall it.

    temperature like 60* doesn't affect if you are in 90+ well it does. Many hardware is set to downclock so you are loosing performance. Maybe you have many programs in the background running too?

    Before changing the motherboard and graphics card the CPU worked perfectly

    can you check the temperature of GPU also, and please reapply thermal paste and reseat the cooler (if it was already applied on the cooler then you are gonna have to buy new paste don't worry it's cheap )

    @neymar1294 i would definitely check the contact between cpu cooler with the cpu and don't apply too much tim on it. applying a grain of rice of tim on the middle of ihs always works wonder for me :rockout:

    OP, please fill in your system specs. It makes it easier for everyone to help you.

    Just to be clear, we're talking about 90-100 degrees Celsius, correct?

    If so, smart money says that's your problem and your should re-seat your cooler.

    If you need to do that, remember to clean both the CPU and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol using something that will not leave fibers or other remnants. Coffee filters work rather well.

    Do not apply too much TIM! All you need is a grain of rice, exactly as Tom advised. Do not use any more!

    Best of luck.
