Hello, i bought a system yesterday and did some performance tests right away. On games i have less FPS than i expected from a rtx 3070 and as i see from youtube, people with similar setups get 15-25 fps more than i get. I checked for bios updates and it's up to date. Tried some performance settings but no help. Here is the userbenchmark test. Can anyone tell me what can i do to improve performance?

Completely my fault, i thought both x16 pci slots would be the same because they are both x16, switched back to first slot, everything is smooth and card performs as it should.

new system and you already have 700gb on the ssd?
brand and model of the psu?
check cpu temp?
see what is running? 15% background cpu

Here is another test with everything closed. I don't know why it says 13% background usage because on idle CPU usage is max 3% and usually 1%.

CPU Temperature is around 50-70.

Another test without background cpu usage;
