      First off I like to give you my computer specs

       

      FX 8350@4.2Ghz

      Corsair H80i water cooler

      MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ (motherboard)

      G.Skill Sniper 1866 8GB(4gbx2)

      XFX R9 280x 3GB OC black edition(TDBD)

      Corsair AX760w PSU

       

      I upgraded to windows 10 pro 64 from windows 7 pro 64 Monday Aug 10th. this is when I noticed my 3dmark score suffer 800ish points on Firestrike as well as most games a drop in FPS. Games are still very playable but I was under the impression windows 10 it self was going to be an upgrade in performance and even more so when games start to use dx12. I have reformatted windows and wiped both my SSD and HDD made a boot disc for windows 10. I have cleared cmos and I have made sure my CPU cores aren't parked. Made sure every power setting is High performance. went into ccc and put my power limit to +20. Any idea what the deal is???
