Is your fps capped (framerate cap, vsync,...) that would mean lower cpu useage and gpu useage as well they just aren't asked to push too many frames.

So; you currently have a single 8GB stick of RAM...?  Is the second one exactly the same  make, model, speed & timings?


Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

As fast as a 4th Gen. i5 is feeding frames to a 1660 Super, it can process them in it's sleep.

It's highly unlikely that those two will work happily together...

Install anything that shows fps in games. Fraps, msi afterburner, a steam overlay,...

 

Also ram wise ddr3 isn't really picky so if you do add just try to match it as close as possible and well a i5 4460 doesn't really care about dual channel or anything so performance won't really be gained.

 

However don't spend too much money on it when you could be saving up for a platform upgrade as well quad core no ht cpu's are very much so kinda crud to game on in new titles.
