Hey!
I just got my Rog strix 3070 OC v2 and it feels like it's underperforming.
In games like Battlefield 5 I get only around 100 fps on all settings Ultra and DXR (Ray tracing) off on 1080p res.

I've watched a couple of videos with people who have exact same CPU and GPU as me and they get around 150 avg FPS on same settings.
Those 2 videos:

View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c76r-P8IYkY&t=63s&ab_channel=G%C3%B6khanKo%C3%A7


My setup is:
GPU: Asus Rog Strix 3070 OC v2
CPU: Intel core i5 10600k
PSU: Asus rog strix 850W, 80 PLUS Gold
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix Z490-A GAMING
Ram: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 3600MHz 16GB
Harddrive that game is installed on: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD


I know my CPU might be bottlenecking abit compared to the 3070, But since the 2 persons on the videos can reach around 150 fps with basically same setup why is my avg fps like 40-50% lower?

What resolution?

Run a userbenchmark and post the link to the results here.

Do you have latest GPU drivers, windows updates, chipset drivers, BIOS?
I just tried reinstalling windows and all drivers. Chipset were outdated but updated now and Bios I'll have to check. Gonna try the userbenchmark once I'm done reinstalling some apps and checked that all drivers are up to date and I'll get back to you

Double check your clock speeds and temps. Just because you put 16GBs of 3600MHz ram in doesn't mean it's running at that speed. And if the temps are high they won't be able to maintain that speed.
Any good program to use for this and also to change the clock speed on the ram with?
 
Alright I'm back! I've checked all the drivers and they are up to date and so are BIOS.
Ran the Userbenchmark

Seems like my ram is underperforming according to the benchmark. Should that be it?
As @sizzling said, you need to enable XMP profile in your bios. That may very well be the issue.

Also you have very high background CPU usage. Close every other program except the userbenchmark and run it again.

Entered BIOS and set the clock to 3600 MHz as they're supposed to run. Got a huge increase in rating on the ram and a 10% increase in Desktop rating.
