I've recently picked up a Coolermaster HAF with an ASUS p8p67pro motherboard equipped with 8 gigs of ram while running on Windows 7. This thing is hardly a month old, and yet it runs like an old dog with hip dysplasia.
I've downloaded the DPC Latency Checker V1.3.0 to help me find the root of the problem, yet to no avail. I've disabled basically every driver that I've deemed unecessary, and it's not like I've got too many programs installed since this thing is about a month old.
At times, the Latency is in the red zone all the way across the screen, thus making it impossible to accomplish anything. I'm a 3D artist, so I'm used to computer slow downs while working with large files, but the CPU slows down even while idle.
The problem is sporatic - sometimes really bad, sometimes super bad, to not so bad to no problem at all (though very rarely) -- making it harder to diagnose the problem.
Here's the hardware:
- Box: Coolermaster HAF 922
- Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 PRO
- CPU: LGA1155 socket for intel 2nd generation core / 3 processors
- Graphics: Nvidia Quadro 4000 + Nvidia gtx 560
- Network: ASUS PCE- N13 802.11b/g/n Wireless adapter
- Audio: Realtex ALC 892
The two Nvidia graphics cards are not SLI compatible (the Quadro being a Workstation card), but I have them hooked up to separate monitors and they seem to work fine. Could that be part of the problem?
Needless to say, this is driving me mad. Any help / advice would be awesome.
