Default Re: Performace loss with time?

could be a heat problem. Check your cpu temps. Could be that your CPU is throttling.

Mines wasn't making good contact with my heatsink so I took it off, reapplied Arctic silver and made sure the HSF was on tight so that it wouldn't move the least bit and it solved my degrading performance probs.

Also check if you have buildup on your case fans and such, maybe its time for cleaning? just a thought
