  1. Folks, just a follow up on my predicament for those on a similar situation: after a lot of frustration and countless hours testing everything possible I realized that my cpu was capped at 800mhz on boot, even though the bios was configured correctly. I know now that I should have noticed this much earlier but... whatever. This seems to be a problem with a device called BD ProcHot from the motherboard, which regulates the cpu to throttle down when overheating is detected. Obviously, my brand new setup was not overheating and it seems to be a problem with the sensor that detects overheat from my Z390 UD. This can be circumvented with a software called ThrottleStop (apparently used by enthusiasts to overclock their computers). In ThrottleStop there is an option to disable BD ProcHot and therefore enable your cpu to achieve its proper frequency. I don't encourage people to live on that by no means, since ProcHot is a safety measure to our precious CPU, but it can at least allow me to use my computer to full potential while I wait for my vendor to change my mobo. Cheers!
  2. Hey guys, thanks for the quick feedback! Fasauceome, I just enabled XMP and got a slight improvement, but still 'way below expectations'... I'm considering formatting again, but I'm not sure if it would matter. Quick note here: After I formatted, I realized that I didn't need to update the drivers, and the last time I formatted a computer (maybe seven years ago...) I remember I had to. And yeah, the i7 was unfortunately way more expensive over here. I plan to upgrade my vga by the end of the year, but I think I'll be good with the i5. Thanks again.
  3. Hello folks.I just bought a new cpu/ram/mobo for an upgrade I've been saving for. Installed, formatted and updated drivers but my new overall performance is crappy to say the least. Here is what I got: Core i5 9600k DDR 4 16gb 3200mhz Hyper X Predator (dual channel) Z390 UD Gigabyte I already had a Nvidia 1060 6gb and a power supply (750w 80plus Gold Cooler Master). As I mentioned, I'm getting a terrible banchmark and I can't figure out why... I didn't touch the bios, since I'm not very tech savvy and don't want to screw up. The only thing that looks abnormal to me is that my ram is listed as 1200mhz (2400 on dual channel) even though it is supposedly 3200, but I don't think this is the sole responsible for my predicament. Any suggestions are welcome!
