Posted · Original PosterOP

I just recently built a new pc but it is running very slow despite it having some pretty good parts. I'm new to building so i honestly have no idea what I'm doing. Please help
The parts I'm using are:

Corsair 220T rgb mid tower gaming case

corsair rm650 performance atx power supply

AMD Ryzen 5 1600

AMD b450 tomahawk

AMD radeon rx 5600xt

G.Skill ripjaws V 8gb x2

Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

You may have forgotten to enable XMP in the BIOS, so that the ram runs at a higher speed. What speed did you buy?

 

Also, you are using an SSD, not a hard drive, correct?


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

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I'm using a Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive, and I have not even touched the BIOS just cause I really didn't know what to do. The ram is ddr4-3200

The PC is probably slow because you do not have an SSD, hard drives can be quite sluggish. Although, if you describe the ways that it is slow, that would help.

 

If you have not touched the BIOS, the ram is probably running at 2133 instead of 3200. You should look up a guide for how to enable XMP, it is quite simple.

I believe its called something different then XMP for AMD, name changes based on motherboard manufacturer, threw me for a loop first time I went to enable it on Ryzen.

I just enabled the XMP. It's just whenever I try to get on a game. The startup is fine, It's just once I get into the actual game everything's just choppy. Youtube and other streaming apps run completely fine though even at 1080p.
