    hello so recentally i have upgraded my pc , bought a new motherboard , ram , cpu ,graphics card and power supply,only thing kept from my other setup was harddrive an case, i put it all together an started it up to my surprise it started just like i left it on my old setup. everything saved im guessing bc of the hardrive but the only problem is now is that i feel it runs much slower ,could it maybe be because i did no driver update for my motherboard ?and is it a must when upgrading to a new mb you need to do a driver update , i heard many people say i have to reinstall windows 10 if its running slow, hence when i powered it on for the first time after rebuilding it started just like i left it. just now it feels super off when im using it , just recently my usb interface has started making a cackleing noise and i have to let my pc run for like 10 minutes after powering on before doing anything like its a damn car. I put a pretty penny into this new build and theres no reason it should be running this slow , its not an unbareable slow tho im currently typing this on it and you cant tell. So could it be i need to do some kind of driver download to my motherboard or reinstall windows or possibly something else?
    my specs are :
    g force rtx 2080
    MSI B450 Tomahawk
    16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM
    AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6 core processor
    also just learned my board does not support my r5 3600 without a bios update and idk how to do that ( also do not know how im using my pc if it dosnt support it because i didnt do a bios update) pls help im not trying to find out im frying my processor or sum

    I would do a clean install. After the clean install, load your mobo DVD and install all your drivers or go to your mobo website and download/install the drivers manually.

    Then read your mobo manual for your BIOS update procedure.

    If your system booted, then the board shipped with a bios that supports the 3xxx chips. I would check to see what bios you are running.
    Next I never use msi boards however the ONLY way I ever update a bios on a gigabyte, asus, or asrock board is by using the utility built into the bios. I checked the support page for that board and it appears msi has the same option called Mflash. I never recommend using a windows based update utility.

    If you do decide to update the bios, be sure you read and FULLY understand the flashing procedure. While a bios update is not difficult, an incorrect flash can render your board unbootable ie junk.
