New PC is underperforming

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I built a new PC (my first) but is it underperforming.  Hardware consists of:


Ryzen 5 2600

XFX RX580 GTS Black Core

T-Force Delta 2x8 3000MHz

B450 Tomahawk


SeaSonic M12II 620W


I noticed that I was getting low fps for what it is. In CSGO I'd get 120 max in the menu and 50-150 ingame (usually 50-100). I was getting mediocre FPS in L4D2 as well.


I installed the ryzen utility and observed the CPU while CSGO was running. The speed spiked to 2.8GHz randomly a couple times but other than that never exceeded 1.55GHz. So I guess the motherboard is under-utilizing the processor?


Some forums online said that rolling back the bios fixed this issue, but I don't want to try that yet. I don't want to update the bios yet either. I'm not really familiar with all of this bios heebeejeebee and I don't want to fuck up my new PC. Any suggestions on what to do??

CSGO and other Source Engine games are single core intensive. Ryzen still isn't. So this is more expected than underperforming. Have you run any benchmarks to see if there's issues anywhere else than in Source games?
