Underperforming setup

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi. I've just built my first PC and my setup seems to be really underperforming compared to similar setups online. 

I'm running a

MSI B450 tomahawk

Ryzen 5 2600

EVGA 1060 3gb SC

Single 16gb stick DDR4 3000mhz 

 

For example I can run Forza horizon 4 on Medium settings with frequent stutters and fluctuating GPU Usage and FPS yet online I see people running it on high/ultra with no issues using a 1060+ Ryzen 2600 setup. From what I've read already it could be down to the single stick of ram but I just want another opinion

Dual channel memory makes a big difference, but you do have a 1060 3GB are you sure the benchmarks you are watching aren't using the 1060 6GB?


Main Desktop: Cpu - I7-8700k @5ghz | Mobo - Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E | Gpu - Asus ROG STRIX 2080ti OC Ram - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 3200mhz | Aio - H100i Pro RGB | Psu - Evga 850 GQ | Case - Fractal Design Meshify C White | Storage - Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVME SSD 1x 1TB 1x 512GB / 1x Seagate Ironwolf Pro 4TB HDD |

 

TV Streaming PC: Intel Nuc CPU - i7 8th Gen | RAM - 16GB DDR4 2666mhz | Storage - 256GB WD Black M.2 NVME SSD |

 

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S10+ - Ceramic White 512GB |

 

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

I've watched videos with the 3gb version and it handles the game fine. It should be good for high at 1080p 60fps but mine stutters at 1080p Medium settings

Stock cooler, a case with choked airflow, and no SSD. I would run some stress tests while monitoring temps, try HWMonitor and Prime95 Small FFTS. Post the max and average temps on here and we can go from there, also your idle temps. Possibly the PC is thermal throttling, also if the HDD is old or used it could be a failing drive. A solid state drive can make a huge difference.
