have you experienced any crashes,restarts,or pure shutdowns?
You can use task manager to see your cpu usage.MSI AFTERBURNER is also a good option,but only works while gaming and its more complicated to set up.
What has led to your concern that your cpu is not working right?
 
Most basic way is to view the usage in task manager. Right click on the taskbar at the bottom of your screen > click the 'task manager' option > click on the 'performance' tab > and it should be the CPU section that defaults to your view. There you can see all the cores/threads being used and at % utilization and clock speeds (GHz). Try running a few benchmarks like Cinebench r20 or r15 to see if your CPU is being utilized 100% to it's marketed clock speeds. Due note that the clock speeds will drop the hotter the CPU gets to prevent long term damage.

Normally if you are not experiencing any crashes or stutters your CPU should be outputting it's stock performance. If you have the kind of unlocked CPU like AMD Ryzen or intel's K series chips then you can push the performance even further with a little research.

people are telling me that my MB is not good and that my cpu clock is too slow and that its bad for gaming and that here is no way to overlock the cpu ... and they say that my cpu is too slow

but my mb in bios has overlock options and msi command senter has overlock options so can i or cant i overclock it

this all raised from people saying that the cpu and mb are bottlenecking my gpu also they say that the ram is a cheap bad ram
