Cpu (Ryzen 5 3600) badly underperforming (5th percentile on UserBenchMarks).

I have no ideas how to fix this…
If someone could help that would be great!

I have no idea if recent optimizations might apply to your CPU, but there is a more recent version of the motherboard BIOS (Jul 22) available here...

You seem to still be running the Mar 12 BIOS.

Should i get the 2021/07/22 version?
I certainly would, but I've never had any problems with flashing a new BIOS. I am fearless 😋

Seriously, though, it's very hard to know exactly what's improved, but improvement of some type is the whole point of a new BIOS release. You'll never know if it improves your CPU's lackluster performance until you try.

"Base clock 3.6 GHz, turbo 3.55 GHz (avg) "

Your cpu is throttling. What are your CPU temps? What cpu cooler are you using?
I'm using the normal stock cooler (stealth wraith) and my temp stay around 50-55c on idle but when playing a game like fortnite or val it goes to 75-83c

Yeah, ill give it a try
 
What slots are you running your ram in? Did you manually adjust timings or just used a preset profile? Ram latency seems a tad high, unless I'm mistaken, which would kill a Ryzen cpu's performance in multithreading scenarios

I have my ram manually set 3600mhz and ive tried to turn xmp on to see a difference but nothing. My ram is in DDR1 and DDR2.

I think DSzymborski may have found your culprit, you really do need to do a clean install of Windows changing so much hardware.

You can run userbenchmark again with Hwinfo on and monitor what your max temperature gets up to.
Ill try running userbenchmark again with hwinfo and see my max temp, With the windows reinstall i want that to be my last resort, But if i get to that point should i use media creation tool or ios file on usb
