Question GPU and CPU not reaching 100% usage, system underperforming heavily.

Hello everyone,

My current system is:
MSI B560M Pro-E
Intel i5-10400
RTX 3070
16GB RAM 3200Mhz (Single Channel)
1440p/165Hz Monitor
600w PSU - 80+ Bronze

I'm getting extreme cases of bottleneck and pretty much all my games are underperforming. I can't get past 100fps on almost no game at all. Elden Ring, I can't reach 60fps on any part of the Open World, under any resolution, FPS is exactly the same (45-55 ish). While this is happening, neither CPU or GPU are even close to reaching 100% usage. (pics)

You can see clearly how the FPS barely changes and also how the usage from neither CPU or GPU are even closing to 100%, so I'm not sure what exactly is causing the bottleneck.

Here's Elden Ring failing to even coming close to 60FPS, while neither CPU or GPU are being stressed: View: https://imgur.com/a/ojmEZWy


Death Stranding, when being CPU bottlenecked, can easily reach 120+FPS, mine can't pass 80FPS, doesn't matter where or which setting.

Things I've tried:
  • DDU and reinstall everything
  • Installing chipset drivers
  • Turning on Resizable BAR
  • BIOS update
Nothing changed whatsoever. Not sure if relevant, but when running synthetic benchmarks, like Heaven or 3DMark, my GPU does manage to reach 100% usage. However, my CPU scores are A LOT under the "average for my device".

Any help would be greatly appreciated on what to do or to figure out what's wrong with my system.

"600w PSU - 80+ Bronze" Manufacturer? How old? History of heavy gaming use?

Disk drive(s): make, model, capacity, how full?

= = = =

Drivers: manually download drivers directly from the applicable manufacturer's websites. Reinstall and reconfigure. No third party tools or installers.

Also use Task Manager and Resource Monitor to observe system performance. Use both tools but only one tool at a time.

The objective is to discover what the system is doing, trying to do, etc. when the system bottlenecks.

Look for what resources are being used, to what extent (%), and what is using any given resource.

Process Explorer (Microsoft, free) may also prove helpful.

I would not expect a drastic diff in perf but your not helping by running single channel ram.

Just to see if something shows download this.
