"I just took out an e8500 boy that rocked"

Of course it rocked. Higher default clock speed, more L2 cache, lower wattage requirements. Unless you run programs that can take advantage of all 4 cores, you downgraded. If you don't have a manual for your board, go to the XFX website & download a copy, then read thru the BIOS chapter.
