Plugged Up Speed Somewhere

So I was having so much trouble with my older system, I decided to build a brand new one

All I was looking for is the awesomeness of unRAID, and a decent gaming machine

So I scoured the posts made a few threads and asked around and came up with what I throught should be an ideal machine

Taking some new games like Doom, I';m getting 111+ FPS, Rise of Tomb Raider I'm getting ~35

Which are both playable numbers but then I run 3Dmark, I'm getting 3700, which is really lol

And flash games are dragging their behinds in terms of FPS

Another weird hiccup is the internet speed is slow, nothing access Server but my VM, and pages are loading like they do on dial up

So somewhere the resources are dammed up somewhere, but after weeks of trying to find out where, I'm chasing my tail around

Hopefully another few set of eyes can see something I don't

Already looked at the main causes MSI interruption and the entire Video Card passed through even if I'm not suing the audio, as well as CPU isolation and pinning

I'm thinking it's a weird hiccup in the unRAID config or on the board BIOS itself


If any has run some of the hard ware below (and seeing how i got all the recommendations form here I know they do :D) are there any tweaks needed?

Or is it a simple mistake in the XML

As always thanks every body for advice/solutions to try

Also to expand on the network lab

A wireless device on my network gets 74 MBS DL and 11.86 UL where as my VM gets 6 DL and 7 UL
