Very weird issue after hardware upgrade, Any pointers?

Recommended Posts

So I upgraded my pc today, My original setup was using a 7700k and a maximus IX Formula (I ended up upgrading earlier than anticipated because my motherboard bricked itself). I am now running the same specs but with a 9900k and Maximus XI Formula. My full specs are below.

  • i9 9900k 8Cores@5.0Ghz

  • 32GB 3200mhz CL14 TridentZ


  • Asus Maximus XI Formula

  • C:/ 512gb M.2 SSD (Samsung 960 Pro)

I have done several stress tests, P95, Cinebench 20, OCCT and I am fairly confident my OC is stable, Also to eliminate this as a problem I have experimented with higher voltages and no OC as a control. This issue persists across all.

For most cases performance is as expected, I get good fps in games, Even CPU intensive ones like Arma that rely heavily on single core performance. Cinebench score was well within expectations and cpu intensive rendering is performing like a dream. HOWEVER. I am having a very strange issue in that whenever I try to launch a program I click the shortcut, Be it on the start menu or taskbar or even on my desktop..... Nothing happens. No proper click animation, But then about 15 seconds later the app will open up as if I had only just clicked it then. Also when I click the start menu maybe 1/10 times it is not responsive to button clicks at all. I even had microsoft excel do the delayed button click thing. Very strange and I have never experienced anything like it before. Any ideas?

Update, Think I fixed it by disabling the nahimic service, It seems it comes with the motherboard and causes a whole host of issues. Will keep updated hopefully this resolves it.
