I just upgraded my CPU from a Ryzen 7 2700x to the new Ryzen 7 5800x, but it is definitely not an upgrade so far.
It is, according to userbenchmark.com, performing way below expectations. I don't feel any difference from the 7 2700x myself either.
I tried to overclock the CPU aswell with a multiplier of 40, but it was still performing below expectations.
The temperature is fine, around 25-35 celsius.
I'm not really sure what can cause the problem.
Any ideas? I dont want to have wasted 580 USD.. and I'm not clever enough myself to find some solutions..

The liquid cooler I bought for the CPU (MSI MAG CoreLiquid 240mm) is very noisy aswell. The fans are so noisy even when I put my fans on silent everywhere I know of.

CPU, motherboard and liquid cooler are all brand new.

Are you benchmarking it without any programs open? Make sure everything is closed. Check your power options too.

And what do you mean by it performs below expectation other than userbenchmark? Your windows won't be any faster. But you should notice fps increase in most games, that's how you would see the difference (and for 1440p resolution and below). At 4k it becomes more gpu bound.

Otherwise your 2700x isn't slow by any means, not sure what you would expect other than faster rendering/processing and fps increase in game.

Also 5800x is a very hot chip. It will ramp up your cpu cooler fans (and case fans if you don't change curve fan) instantly as soon as you put load on it. I personally undervolt it using ryzen master for when I game so my fans don't go all crazy and my temperatures stay close to my old 5 3600 levels.
