trying to upgrade MB and CPU and cooling on a budget

Hi all,
I'm currently using an Asus P8Z77-V Z77 mb witch i believe is a micro MB with a Intel Core I5 3570k processor along with a Koolermaster fan cooling system the cooling system has been a bane for me I've tried to upgrade it on my current MB a couple times and liquid coolers that say they're compatible with my chipset and MB don't seem to actually be compatible. I would like to move into the ddr4 compatible MB realm and something in the core i7 family that wont tank my budget along with a good liquid cooler. The case for my rig is the Falcon NW talon 3.0

  1. If you're gaming then your PC is pretty nice, if you're think something is letting you down it has to be the Graphics Card, or maybe RAM if you have under 8 gig.
    Fyi you can't run DDR4 platform on that chipset series.

    Yeah that's why I was wanting to upgrade to a core i7 series and change out my motherboard. I'm running 16gig of ram now with a nvidia geforce gtx960 gpu. I recently did a clean install and reformatting of my Samsung evo 250 gig ssd and windows seems to be taking a really long time to load up compared to when I initially installed the ssd. I've already disabled everything in startup that and a medium or high impact to start up. Virus scans come clean.

    SSDs are pretty easy to get damaged I wouldn't store more than the OS in there, maybe a few games too.
    Did you try full virus scan?
    Some viruses may not be detected like this, do another full scan in safe mode and also do a malware scan from Malwarebytes.
