I5-6600 Bad performance

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My CPU has been very bad, i'm unsure for how long but i've only really noticed it over the past 2 months or so after getting my VR.

My PC would always run very well, high+ graphics on most games but after my GTX 970 broke and i got a GTX 1060 have i had issues with my performance. 

I did a benchmark of my PC: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/19571609

I'm unsure on what the issue is but could be CPU be under-performing because of a new GPU? 

My Power Supply is the Corsair 450w and i was thinking that could have too little power to support my system, can this be the issue for my CPU having bad performance?

The GTX 970 and GTX 1060 should yield similar performance.

Please try running a proper benchmark like Cinebench R15 for example:

R15 just has a ton more benchmark scores, so I recommend using that one (second link in the thread linked above).

Be sure to close out other programs and such before running this test.

 

You should be able to get at least 600cb (assuming you have not overclocked your CPU). 450W on a proper good PSU should be plenty for a system like what you have described.

 

Also, your CPU's thermal paste (the interface material between the cooler and CPU) could be dried up and causing your CPU to run too hot now. 

Do one Cinebench run without any programs open, do another one after that with a temperature monitoring software and see the temps+clock speeds there.

Nice post Minibois....  Also on full load you don't reach 400watts.  Technically 450w will do the job.  However the ampage on the 12v rail can be weak thus causing instability issues and what not.

Thank you!

Done that!

So.. Did the numbers looks correct or was anything kind of 'odd'? 🤔

It should be way plenty, I just mentioned it because you have bad power supplies, good power supplies and everything inbetween. Didn't want to generalize there.

I mean, you said i should get 600cb, the highest i got out of the 2 tests was 539cb and my CPU went all the way up to 71°C so i guess it's what was expected, a little lower but the Userbenchmark said i was below expectations (22nd percentile) so i don't know if my PC is performing as it should or not. My storage drive might actually be the issue as it's quite old and slow, maybe that has something that can affect the performance.

But overall i think there wasn't anything "odd"
