PC Underperforming

Teye23
 Share

Hello,

I recently built a computer for the first time and everything works great except I believe my pc is not performing as well as it should be. Today I was watching some benchmarks on Rainbow Six: Seige to see if what I built was performing similar to those benchmarks and I what I seen was, even though they had similar builds, they were getting better performance by a somewhat large margin. I typically get 90-100fps on ultra while the ones I viewed were getting usually +140. I am new to the pc building scene so when it comes to bios and things like that I get very lost and afraid to mess something up. As far as what I have done in bios is set my RAM to the rates it was advertised at which I will list below along with my other specs.

Build:

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600x

GPU: Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X470-f

RAM: 2x8Gb G-Skill TridentZ 3000mhz

SSD: addlink 1Tb

Power Supply: Corsair RM650x

 

If I can get any advice as to what may be causing this under performance I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Your cooling may be a problem. Whats cooling your cpu/system? Do you run the game as high priority? Try turning on the exact settings as the people that you've seen benchmarks from. And as you said ''Similiar builds'' that goes into play too. They might have faster ram, different settings for gpu,cpu and even the speed of the ssd matters. Even the tasks in your background can be a problem. Have you downloaded the latest drivers for your cpu and gpu?. Theres alot of factors that make up those 140+ fps..

First I'd check if the video you've watched actually had some info to it. Like what speed the cpu was running at. If overclocked that would explain some of the extra fps but more likely he or she was not running the same settings or an overclocked graphics card as well. Unless it was a reputable outlet, results are comparable.

As far as cooling goes I'm using a basic cooler master 212 EVO and it does the job but planning on getting a better one soon. The ram was also 16Gbs, some were 3000mhz and others 3200mhz. For downloading the latest drivers I believe I have done so but is there somewhere to check if it was done properly?

Have you installed the latest nvidia drivers? Also are you sure you are running on the same settings as what the videos show? that fps difference is pretty significant.

Is your system running in dual channel ram or just random? if so it makes the thing go slower too. Sorry but there are alot of factors that come into play for those 140fps that your probably dont need unless your running a 120hz or 144hz monitor.

Okay! I may have found the issue. While running task manager I realized only half of my RAM is actually being used. Again unfamiliar with bios and things like that but is there a way to fix that?

I just realized that my RAM was not being fully utilized with only 7.0/15.9Gb, so I am guessing I need to enable dual channel?

Dual channel is automatically used, you don't have to enable it.

Well for some reason only half of my ram is being used (7.0/15.9) so if thats not it did I install my ram incorrectly?
