Hello I posted in the past about overall bad PC performance and didn't get much of an answer. I ran cinebench on my AMD 9590 chip at 4.7 GHZ and got a 225...I don't know what in the world is wrong with my computer it seems very bad for my chip. Can anyone help? Will provide any additional info if needed. Temps are good on cpu and gpu and the test was multi threaded. Yes my drivers are up to date. Thank you for any help greatly appreciated!

Temp for CPU maxes out at 66c and for GPU maxes out at 75c. Cooling is liquid Corsair H100i.

Update: I payed closer attention to the frequency during cinebench and it fluctuates a ton between 1400 mhz and 4700 mhz ... guessing that is the issue? not normal right?

Update 2: I went into my bios and lowered my clock settings and it stopped throttling itself. I guess I can't run this chip at stock speeds but oh well. New score was 657 almost 3x higher so I am guessing it is as fixed as I can get it.
 
From what I have read on this forum over the years, people have had all sorts of problems with the FX 9XXX cpus. At this point the AM3+ is pretty much an end of life platform. If you could find a FX 8XXX series cpu at a decent price, that may be a better option. Or live with the current cpu underclocked. I am running a FX 6300 at stock frequency, and am perfectly happy with it, however I am not a gamer.

Ok sorry for the late response, after you asnwered 2 questions i m sure what is at fault now, 1st it is a watercooled cpu and the trothling comes from vrms. Try tu put a small fan to blow directly to vrms on motherboard. Before anyone buya cooler for amd fx please read a bit before amd are the worst chips to cool on water it is very very recomended a top-down blow cooler for an amd chip.
