Have you looked to see if you were thermal throttling on any of the components?

Using software like Hwmonitor to see if your CPU is being underutilized or something would be a good move.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

There could be a chance that the game is still at it's default FPS cap of 300 fps. While my rig doesn't reach 300 fps at the settings I run, I notice my FPS is higher when I set the FPS cap to unlimited using the console command

fps_max 0

Have in mind that CS:GO is still running on the very old Source 1 engine which is around us since 2002~2003... Source 1 has issue with CPUs from Skylake era and older (14nm), because of some changes in microcode, the physics engine actually works differently on newer CPUs than older, and that sort of broke HL2 speedrunning consistency a lot before new strats were found.

 

Even with updates to the engine some fundamental and core structures simply can't be changed, the only way to get it fixed is porting the game to an up-to-date engine like Source 2 but VALVe's too lazy to do that.

 

So what happens here is that when you use 14nm++ i7 9700K processor you're using a piece of hardware that has already "phased out" singularities of the software you're running, in this case Source/CS:GO, the results are very variable, among the many attempts to fix the issues you sometimes gets people who will run the game on expencted fps like 300+ for a processor like yours while others will just get stuck.

 

There is literally nothing to do here if you have encounter one of these cases, you verify it playing any other game like Fortnite or Overwatch... if your fps is super high on those as you'd expect than you just got unlucky your hardware combination is too "current gen" for the quite old CS:GO.
