Question

Self assembled pc problem

I built a pc earlier this year, and I put very good parts into, but it seems super slow when checking emails, browsing textbook pdfs, etc. Does anyone know what might be the problem? It has an Asus gtx 1060 graphics card, a ryzen5 1500x processor, and a ryzen B350 DDR4 motherboard. I added my own fan and used a stock fan that came with the motherboard. I also didn't put thermal paste on the professor when putting it on, since the manual said it didn't need it. Any help? Thanks!

Very odd to not add paste.

I've heard folk try it without. No tech I know would go without but you didn't reveal if it pre-applied. Even then I make a judgment call.
