Thank you for joining the Intel Community Support.
To verify the performance of the processor, please run the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool. You can find the link here. Save the scan in your computer and attach it to the thread.
Also, go into the task manager and verify the CPU, Memory, and Disk performance. Please attach pictures if possible.
I am glad to hear that the tool provided worked fine to test the functionality of the processor. In this case, you may also follow the steps below to fix a computer running slow:
-I know that you reformatted your system, but you may also run an antivirus.
-Check the programs running in the background.
-Free Up Disk Space.
-Keep your operating system up to date.
Please share any findings in case that you need any further help.
I ended up ordering up a new motherboard to see if it solved the issue.
You gave me that tool, and I was absolutely thrilled.
You killed my confidence with cookie cutter answers though.
You mentioned you know the system has been reformatted, which would negate Antivirus minus Rootkits - Checking Programs running in the background (there are none, it's a new wipe), Free up disk space (Its all free, its a new wipe), And keeping the operating system up to date (again, first thing you do after a new wipe)
Here's to hoping that it works as intended.
