After getting 300+ FPS in CS:GO, I thought my i7 was doing great. Then when I benchmarked it with Cinebench, I saw that my score was 1029CB. When I looked at the ranking on the left, it showed that the average i7-3930K AT 3.30GHz DID BETTER THAN MY CPU! Being confused, I searched up the average i7-8700k Cinebench score. It was 1400CB. At stock speed. And here I am.
Here are my other specs:
RAM = 32 GB (made by the store from where I got my old PC from)
Motherboard: ASUS TUF-Z390 Gaming Plus
Graphics Card = NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
Cooler = Thermaltake 3.0 Riing RGB 240mm
Vcore is 1.305.
Average temp was about 80°C during the test. After the test, it dropped to 40 a few seconds later.

My score decreased to 872 after I loaded default settings in bios.
 
Have you disabled the;

In the bios disable C1E, C3 .C6/C7,C8, C10 , Ring to core Offset, Cpu EIST,RTH, Energy efficient Turbo, Voltage optimization, VT-d.

Set your Cpu Vcore Loadline calibration to Turbo or equivalent for your motherboard (1 level below max).

What's your cpu usage before you start running the test? Background programs and such make a big difference.

Also, what's your cpu usage while running the test? All threads maxed at 100%?
 
You may be hitting the default CPU current limit (which is rather low on Asus boards) and that is causing the CPU to throttle during the Cinebench test causing the low score. Make sure that the CPU current limit in the BIOS is maxed out when trying to push a high overclock.

Most of the time all threads are maxed out. Sometimes about 1-3 threads dip for a maximum of 5 seconds, but only to a minimum of 60%.

I already have it maxed out.

It wasn't actually Cinebench. It was my BIOS. Apparently, it changed the number of cores that were being used. But that doesn't explain why HWMonitor was showing 6 cores.
