Solved High-end computer slows down without increasing temperature.

April 2, 2013 at 17:29:28
Specs: Windows 7, 8,00 gb RAM i7-2600k
High-end computer slows down for no apparent reason after a couple hours.
When I open Catalyst Control Center, the temperature shown is rarely over 70 degrees Celsius.
It starts to slow down after I played for about two hours of games.
I recently changed my fans tho it doesn't seems to be the problem.
I recently cleared all the corrupted files and useless programs on my computer.

Any idea on what could be going on?

"my temperature rises up to 98 degrees, which is not to extreme"

Regardless of whether that temp is for the GPU or CPU, it IS too extreme. The max Tcase temp for your CPU is 72.6C. When a CPU gets too hot, it will throttle back in an attempt to lower it's temp. Throttling has a negative effect on performance, in other words, the system will run slow. The max temp for most GPUs is 105C so if it's your video card that's running at 98C, you may be bordering on a catastrophic failure.

Hi William,

Open the task manager and check for the programs with high memory usage under the process tab.

Let me know the name of the programs with high memory usage.

Meanwhile, you may perform the steps mentioned on the link below:

Hi ManshuS,
thanks for the reply!

The programs I see having high memory usage (about 50k or more) are:

Dropbox.exe (50k)
firefox.exe (350k)
LeagueofLegend (660k lol)
LolClient.exe (350k)
Skype.exe (120k)

Install HWMonitor and see all of your temperatures, not just your video card's.
The time it takes to slow down (hours) does point to some type of heating issue.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I believe that's the GPU (video card) temp. What is the CPU temp?

Hi William,

I believe LeagueofLegend is a game and it is taking maximum memory to slow down the system. If you minimize the game and perform certain operations (Browsing, searching, scanning) in your system, it will not work properly. Also, I would suggest you to perform a complete virus scan on the system. GPU temperature seems normal to me.

Also, since when are you facing this issue as you can perform system restore if it has started recently.

For more information on system restore click the link mentioned below:

NOTE: System restore will remove the applications installed after the restore point but does not delete any data.

Thanks & Regards

Thanks all for the reply!

So I downloaded HWMonitor. As expected, my temperature rises up to 98 degrees, which is not to extreme, but a bit high (correct me if I'm wrong). In case it is too high, does anybody know a good program to manually control the fans?
I have this issue ever since I got my computer back from the store (it had voltage issues).
I'm not sure if a system restore would help since the only options I got are restoring from 3 days ago (and I had the same issue at that time). Also, I have run an Antivirus Scan many times, but to no avail.

Post ALL of the temperatures from HWMonitor and identify them.
If the temperature you are posting is in degrees C (which we prefer), then the temperature would be a bit hot for your GPU BUT VERY HOT if it is for your CPU or your case. If you are posting in degrees F, please revise when you post all of the numbers to show C.
Also post your system specs especially including your CPU make/model, your graphics card make/model, your motherboard make/model, your power supply make/model/wattage/amperage on all rails, and as much details as you can provide. These are important as far as what these components can tolerate (temps), and available settings as well as things that might not be apparent until we have more details.
