System feels slow after installing new hardware (CPU, Ram, Motherboard)

Today I rebuilt my current computer with the following parts:

i5-9600k (3.7Ghz 6 core)

16GB DDR4 2133mhz

MSI Z390-A Pro Motherboard

 

Old:

AMD Phenom II 1055T 6x 2.8ghz

8GB DDR3 1066mhz (This maybe be slightly wrong as I cant fully remeber)

ASUS m4a89gtd-pro/usb3 Motherboard

 

I ran the included driver install utility that came with the board, restarted, no change to system performance

Chrome, Windows Search and moving of window are very slow and weren't before

Tried reinstalling gpu driver aswell to check that, nothing.

 

Is something todo with my hardware configuration (misconfigured bios?) or did I over estimate what this chip should be capable of doing?

My guess, viruses, junk software, or windows acting in its mysterious ways. One way or another a reinstall is a sure fire way to get rid of the issue.

No I did not, I guess I will do that then

A fresh Windows installation is one of the first things to do with a new build. Hopefully it will fix these issues.

I honestly didn't even know you could do that. Since Windows XP i've always reformatted when installing a new MOBO. Most other components you can switch out and change drivers.
