[SOLVED] CPU performing very bad

Jun 26, 2022
Hi everyone,

Whenever I play a game on my pc, I get terrible frames. On Minecraft, I was getting less than 1 fps. I noticed that on AMD Adrenalin it said that 100% of my cpu was being used when I was playing Minecraft. I have an i7-4790k so it should be able to run Minecraft fairly well. I decided to benchmark my cpu with CPU-Z and on the multi-thread test, I got 430 when I should have gotten around 2301 for my cpu. I also used Cinebench and got a really low score too. I thought that my cpu may be overheating, so I installed Core Temp and HWMonitor. Both programs said that under max load, my cpu was only at 30 degrees celsius. That temperature sounds way too low to be accurate so I was wondering if my cpu temperature sensor is broken. My CPU fan is working, there is newly applied thermal paste, all of the latest drivers are installed, and my psu can handle everything in my computer.

The specs of my pc are:
CPU: Intel i7- 4790k
Motherboard: MSI Z97 GAMING 7
GPU: MSI Radeon RX 570 Armor 8GB

I was wondering if there was anything I could do to fix this or if my cpu is just broken
Thank you for your time!
