So a few weeks back my desktop started having issue rear exhaust fan stop working, side intake fan was going bad. All the fans in the case was original since 2001 when the tower was original put together. This time I wanted Intel parts so order up Asus ROG MOBO, a i5 chip, 16GB of ram plus three case fans. The old AMD set was doing ok but it had hit it limit on what could be done. Ram usage would peak at 80% and crash but looking on the net was down at 48% with 8gb of ram. The new setup my ram usage is between 60-80% which seems high to me. Ive pulled one stick of ram out thinking its a stick issue still high.

Did you load a fresh OS or just install the hard disk from the old machine? Sounds like your issue is software, not hardware to me.

All of that new hardware needs a nice new fast SSD drive too.

Allan I used my old SATA 1TB hard drive which already had Windows 10 installed on it. Along with a 250GB SATA. I couldn't see spinning the money on the solid state drive and pay for a copy of Windows 10. As I'm typing this my ram usage is sitting at 75%.

Right. When you move a drive from one motherboard to another, you need to remove all devices, including hidden ones, then reboot and install all new. Then perhaps you will get a clean running system. If not, you will be chasing ghosts of the old board for ever.
