Blockchain sync extremely slow on Geth

Iv been trying to sync the blockchain on Geth for the past three days now and have only managed to catch up to 807300th block so far. Though initially i enjoyed download speeds of a few second per 256 blocks, speeds have decreased to more than two min per 256 blocks.. at this rate i dont see myself completely synced before another week..

Random search on the net revealed that I may need to sync my clock with the console, try port forwarding, turn off firewall and/or antivirus etc and iv tried all of these but in vain..

however,I can't seem to find any enodes to manually add on the command line, is there a list of enodes somewhere, or the enodes of the bootstrap nodes? I would be grateful if someone could post a list of 10-20 current stable working nodes.

My win64 rpc-node has only 1-2 current active peers.

Please give me advice on what to try next, I'd really like to be a part of the network and mining!

Thank you for your time.
