It does this especially in the pinned threads. It's crap.

This is where I'm at atm. 800 Merkels is my absolute Maximum.

1 x Western Digital WD Blue 1TB, 64MB Cache, SATA 6Gb/s (WD10EZEX)
1 x Crucial BX100 120GB, SATA (CT120BX100SSD1)
1 x Intel Core i5-6500, 4x 3.20GHz, boxed (BX80662I56500)
1 x Kingston HyperX Fury DIMM Kit 8GB, DDR4-2133, CL14-14-14 (HX421C14FBK2/8)
1 x Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 WindForce 2X OC, 4GB GDDR5, 2x DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort (GV-N960OC-4GD)
[note: probably going to be changed to a 4GB Radeon R9 380 (maybe 380X), considering it's performing better than the 960 as of now; it's less efficient, but in terms of performance a tad superior; it also seems like the current AMD chips perform better in terms of DX12, although none of the cards mentioned are really optimized for DX12]
1 x ASRock H170 Pro4S (90-MXGZZ0-A0UAYZ)
1 x EKL Alpenföhn Ben Nevis (84000000119)
1 x Antec GX500 (0761345-15500-7)
1 x Super Flower Golden Green HX 450W ATX 2.3 (SF-450P14XE (HX))


It's a very bad time for this, imho. The Merkel is weak and DX12 hasn't even started, really. It's probably going to take a year until the first proper DX12 cards in my price segment will be released. Which is why I decided not to go for something like the R9 390 or 970 (which has additional V-RAM problems) for 300+ Merkels. The 380(X) or 960 seem like a good, yet modest enough solution. I will probably have to upgrade in 3-4 years, but that's okay. I'll rather spend 200 Merkels now and upgrade later than spend 350 now and upgrade later.

This is all work in progress, of course. I'll order when December comes along imho. The 380X is supposed to release in November.

This is also not a OCD-ish performance/cost setup. I made small sacrifices in order to enable potential upgrades in the future (e.g. an extra 8GB RAM, different graphics card). I'm very confident in this setup, but feel free to criticise and improve. Bare in mind that we're talking about European prices.
I will not buy anything with i at the start of it ever (unless it's an intel thing) as long as I can buy at least two desktops like these for the same price, if someone really wants to go there. I realize it's great quality, but I care about quality/cost a lot more. iStuff is not the best at that imo.

ahah so turns out, my PC is AOK, it just couldn't handle W10. The motherboard-ish stuff happened due to a couple of hard reboots I was forced to perform. My hardware is simply too old for W10, there are serious driver issues. Back to W7, everything is fine. Not really sure what to do now, imho. Originally, I wanted to upgrade in 2016. Might go back to that original plan.

Some computers were just not meant to have toasters in them, I guess.
