comment Performance rating returns with no results
I also have my windows 8 from dreamspark via my university and the assessment worked on my two computers. Try restarting the computer? Sometimes it acts weird right after installation when Windows Update is doing its thing in the background.

comment Windows 7 gets stuck with ~1% CPU. Especially with multithreading
Do you have an SSD? Since I've installed one, everything runs much smoother but occasionally I had a hiccup: the system would literally freeze for around 10 seconds. That could be either disk problem when OS needs to perform a kernel level disk operation or a motherboard issue. Mine is quite old, too

comment Completely random computer restarts (crashes?) on any OS
Definitely make sure if all capacitors have flat tops. I had this issue and some caps were bulged. Re-soldering them fixed the problem.
