Upgrades have little to no Performance?
 
I recently upgraded my Mobo, CPU, Cooling system, and RAM. I have no noticeable performance upgrade! There must be something wrong here. Please help!

New Mobo: Asus Rampage Gene IV X79 Chipset
New Ram: 24Gb Corsair Vengeance triple channel
New CPU: Core I7 3820 3.6Ghz 2011 Socket
New Cooling: XSPC Rasa water block with 450 pump.
OS: Windows 7 64 Bit Ultimate

No performance gain in what exactly? Are you talking about games or some other application?

What did you upgrade from? What performance did you have prior?

What was your previous set up? How is the system behaving? What is your system being used for? Without knowing the particulars it's quite hard for anyone to give advice as to if there is a problem or not.

What did you have before? What are you using your computer for? Did you run any benchmarks prior to upgrading and compare them with your new setup? Unless you are running cpu intensive tasks you may not notice anything.

If your talking about gaming.. then you'll notice very little difference in most games till you upgrade your graphics card..

This was said in your original thread for the retrofit.. also what CPU did you upgrade from?

P.S. 2011 is quad not tri-channel. you should really be running 4 sticks of ram.. but out-side of benches I doubt you'll see much difference (correct me if I'm wrong guys)

Sorry, I upgraded from a ASUS P5QPL-VM EPU LGA 775 Motherboard and Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz with stock fan. And OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800.

No bench-marking done, but gaming and just multitasking seems maybe even worst now.

I just feel like the new socket + X79 chipset should be overwhelmingly different with that much ram and OS running on a Corsair Force GT SSD.

Am I bottle-necked somewhere? Maybe some settings are incorrect in BIOS? I feel like it shouldn't have none responsive programs while only doing a few things at once? Also has slow boot....

It's getting a PCmark score of 5310 with these oc settings. I'm very new to this, any comments are appreciated.

Did you set your Sata to AHCI mode in the bios and do you have the ssd connect to a Sata 6gbs port?
