Hey guys, im new to the forum.
Ive recently built a new computer for myself, in all honesty i would of thought that this computer would be able to run some of the newest games that are coming out quite easily, but for some reason its struggling on even some basic ones.
ok my build:
Intel i-7 2600 3.4ghz
Asus P8h61-M LE motherboard
2x4gb G.Skill ddr3 RAM 1333mhz
Nvidia GeForce 550 GTX Ti
Western Digital 2TB Hdd
The games ive been playing lately, Deus Ex 3, and league of Legends. Ever since i first put this comp together, it has been running slow (as in less that 40 fps in League of legends), but in the last week it has degenerated, and now i cant play basically cause im sitting at 15 or lower fps.. Also, i ran CPU-Z while playing a game of LoL, and my core speed was sitting at under 1000mhz with a multiplier below 16x, which is strange as my computer idling it sits at 1600mhz with a multiplier at 16x.
its really frustrating, and if anyone has had similar problems with these items? or knows a way that i could possibly fix it? i would greatly appreciate the help.

Another Edit: Installed the AI Suite thing that comes with the motherboard, and it has told me that my CPU is running at 83c. It only has the stock cooling on the cpu, and it had the thermal paste already applied to the processor when I installed it. It seems to idle at around 60-65c
Cheers in advance,
