I play games like Overwatch, CSGO, Fortnite, Call of Duty, and Minecraft. I recently just got an i7-8700 8th gen 6 core for christmas to upgrade from my i5. I have an Alien Ware Aurora r7 with a GTX 1070. First thing I noticed when putting it in is that it didn't sound right. The intel fan and my other fan I have made a really loud helicopter noise. I have a 144hz monitor and for people who have one when you get below 144fps in game it looks bad. On my old i5 I got 144+ fps on fortnite 150+ on overwatch and about 130 in fights. In CSGO I got about 180-300+ and in Call of Duty Black ops 3 I got about 130 fps, and in Minecraft about 1000+ in single player and 600-1200 in multiplayer. My i7 can't even push 200 on minecraft and it can't push 100 in overwatch and CSGO. When I tried other games it would get about 50-100 or even lower. We have tried a BIOS and CMOS reset but it didn't work. Anything you guys know that I can do? If you wanna email you can at gasmanplays@gmail or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to give me more info instead of just this replying.

Hello So last night I tried to replace the fan with my original Alien Ware fan and the PC didn't turn on so i switch fans and now it won't even come on. I reset my PC, and I ran a diagnostic and it said everything was fine. I researched before hand and it was possible to do this upgrade.
It use to work with the other fan and now I think it might only work with the fan you guys sent me. When my dad gets home we will put in your fan and see if it works. But I have no nvidia profiles and I ran the diagnostic but nothing was wrong.
