    Performance drop


    So I noticed this performance drop whenever I'm playing games or running programs such as Photoshop, iTunes, etc. Base speed 1.8, overclocked is 2.4 Ghz but this is dropping so hard at 0.7 Ghz and when this happens, audio from VLC or any music running at that time will be stuttering. I right-click desktop and hit refresh many times until it went back up to 2.4 Ghz. This is so annoying because when I'm playing games like LoL or CSGO, the fps will drop from 150+ to 20-30 fps, totally unplayable. Have to quit game and right-click desktop, refresh many times before speed comes back up. Any ideas/solution?

Cannot drag and drop
Hello, I don't seem to be able to drag and drop anymore in more than one application, so it should be Windows, not the applications. I did restart the laptop, but it didn't help. Any suggestions? Thanks! Paul

DWM causing a significant performance drop in games.
Hi, after moving to Windows 8 I noticed a performance loss in many video games. After doing some testing I came to the conclusion that it is caused by the DWM(Desktop Window Manager) stealing CPU cycles from the games. In order to make completely sure DWM was the culprit I tested the same games...
