I mainly use this as a workstation / gaming rig I play FPS games mainly call of duty modern warfare and warzone, but I notice the performance I'm getting is way below average, I get between 80 frames with a max of 110 while playing at 1080p medium/ high settings, (I plan to upgrade my monitor in the near future but I am currently running a MSI Optix MAG 27 inch 144hz 1ms response)
 
I've tried manually optimising warzone by copying a YT guide which seemed to be very highly rated but my game was literally unplayable as it honestly made it look like shit, areas are too dark and the sky is too bright but most importantly the textures as so bad lol, i wouldn't mind this if my fps was performing as expectant but I'm beginning to get frustrated as I cant find any guides to help  ( pic attached of how ) I've also attached the link to the YT video below.
 
My main question is what am I doing wrong, I feel like my pc isn't running as well as it should I ran a benchmark and it says my cpu is performing below average, my GPU could perform better through overclocking but I have no idea if I need to or if my card is even capable because it dose get quite hot  (89 degrees Celsius is the highest I've seen this during the summer), and don't have a clue what the Ram issue was on benchmark probably because I have 2 different speed type of rams?
 
I have updated to the latest windows and latest Nvidia Drivers but 
 
Appreciate any help or recommendations.
 
cheers

I agree with @boggy77.

 

First of all you're slowing down to 2400 across all three sticks and second of all, you're running single channel.

 

Ryzen relies on fast memory to perform well. Don't forget to enable XMP in your BIOS, or you'll still have very poor results.

 

By the way, why did you pick a 3950X for gaming? The 3700X is a much better pick for this somewhat cheap board. The VRMs get quite the workout. This might also throttle your CPU causing sub-optimal results if there's insufficient airflow around them.

PC Specs - AMD Ryzen 5 5600X MSI B550M Mortar 16GB Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3600 @ CL15 - RX5700XT 660p 1TBGB & 256GB 600p Fractal Define Mini C CM V550 - Pop!_OS 20.04

Cheers man, 

 

nah I picked the 3950x for work, I just started a new job in June and we’re building a system for a local authority, so I need to edit a bunch of training videos to send out every couple of weeks so the 3950x seemed like the best option for being able to do that and game, plus I kind of wanted to spend extra on it to future proof,

 

The motherboard I don’t have much choice with I think when I selected the components there wasn’t a lot to choose from since we were mid lockdown suppose I could always upgrade if it comes to it!

it's because of your weird ram configuration

just use the 2 8gb sticks in slots 2 and 4 and enable xmp in bios

Cheers boss 😂 I’m still a fanny when it comes to PC’s
