I recently attempted putting in a new 6 core am3+ processor into my motherboard. After carefully putting it in, there was no display. So I put my old back one and it ran a little slow so I restarted my computer. As on now its runs fine but on battlefield 3 it "studders." Every few seconds I get a split second lag spike which makes it unplayable. Can anyone identify a problem? And is there a reason why my pc would not boot with the new cpu? Thanks.

Have you checked to see if your motherboard supports the FX-6100?

Did you clear the CMOS before installing the new cpu and again when you put the old one back in?

Asus M4A78T-E (should be Extinct)
4Gb of Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz DDR3 (Going strong)
2x1GB 5850's (On their last lags)
Corsair HX850W (Awsome)
NZXT Phantom case (too ***** big)
