My specs:
Amd Ryzen 7 2700x
RTX 2060 SUPER 8GB
32GB Ram
Windows 10 64-bit

I upgraded from 1060 to 2060 a couple months ago (2 days after the return date the rtx 3000 series got announced, feelsbad)
Fortnite is the main game I care about fps on, and there is almost no difference when i upgraded. I have updated the BIOS and I also did a factory reset of my pc.
I see benchmark videos on my exact build and I see people are getting the same frames as me and I am on low settings and they are on ultra. And when I see people on low settings they get like 240 while I am getting 110.
And when I am playing other games I ask my friend what fps he gets (he has rtx 2060 6gb and amd ryzen 5 3600x, 16gb ram), he usually gets 60 more fps than me.
Here is a userbenchmark: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/37513942
Weirdly gpu performs way above expectations.

You have 16GB of Kingston 3200Mhz and 16GB of Corsair 2666Mhz ram? Not convinced that is a good idea.

All games will be limited by either the cpu or the gpu.
Only rarely by the number of threads so long as you have 6(multiplayer excepted).
If a faster graphics card does not improve performance, the conclusion is that your processor is the limiting factor.

My reading says that fortnite is not well treaded and performance depends on fast single thread performance.
Your 2700x has a single thread passmark rating of 2440.
The 3700x is 2689.

The top dog today might be the 5600x at 3382 if you can find one.
The upcoming rocket lake leaks show similar, if not better single thread performance.

Fortnite is more dependent on the cpu than gpu, it’s not that heavy on the gpu. Your cpu is being choked by your RAM running at 2133mhz. In that mix of RAM do you have 2x8gb 3200mgz? If yes take the rest out and turn on XMP/DOCP.

mixing ram kit and it running at 2133?

Thanks for informing me about the ram. Something I upgraded quite some time ago but forgot it should be the same model and speed. I just took out 2 of the ram sticks (the ones that were 2666MHz) and tried turning on DOCP but my pc does not boot after that. I tried bumping up voltage to 1.35 and having the speed and 3000MHz and that seems to work. Could I go higher?

Is the RAM in the correct slots?

Welcome. How’s Fortnite and Userbenchmark now?
Here is the userbenchmark: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/38266443
Looking pretty decent
And Fortnite seems to be going a lot better than before at least, but I still see some other people benchmarking and they get a lot more fps.
This benchmark I found:
View: https://youtu.be/1CGzpCU_BHk?t=171


And then my benchmark:
View: https://youtu.be/3gYXjd5wPFA?t=105


The links are timestamped to a time we were both in the same location.
I am at 180-210 while he is at 250-280.

The only thing I can see is in that video they have the cpu overclocked to 4.3GHz. As Fortnite is largely cup dependent that could be the difference.

So I went to the bios and changed CPU ratio from Auto to 42 (The voltage was set to auto), went into Fortnite and landed the same place and went from 190 to 250fps.
Then I tested multicore with cinebench, the cpu temp went to 85 degrees and then everything black screened. Tried again at 41 ratio, the degrees went over 90 and then I just stopped the test.
Do I need to set the cpu voltage to a fixed value? Is there some other settings I need to change?
I am using the stock cooler fan, so if I get another fan will I be able to go higher without it going to such high temps?
Thanks

My overclocking knowledge is best described as a novice. After reading for my own 3700x I settled on using PBO instead of overclocking.
