Recently got a new gpu (rtx 2070) and it isn't at it's full potential, I tried uninstalling drivers from my old gpu (rx 480) via device manager and it sait it had uninstalled the drivers and that it worked but I'm not sure if it did as I don't have amd catalyst manager. The other potential issue could be my cpu, it's an i5 6600k at 3.6ghz.

Any help would be appreciated <3
 
You should do a clean uninstall of the 480 drivers. Going through Device Manager wont get everything. Use the DDU tool below in safemode and remove all of the 480 drivers.

As for your CPU, in some games that are CPU heavy, such as BFV, it will hold you back some. But most games scale to fast single threads which the 6600k has, so for those it will be just fine.

Additionally, go to userbenchmark.com and run a bench. Leave a link here with the results as it will compare your 2070 scores to others and show if there is a potential issue.

I know it’s not at the full potential as I’m getting a very similar frame rate on nearly every game in comparison to my last gpu. I can answer the other part and the other answer later today. <3

Depending on game you were probably cpu limited already. In those games you won't get any more fps. A gpu can only render the frames the cpu can feed it. I'd start by ocing your processor.

If that helps you'll know that's the problem

Also depending on the monitor being used. A 60Hz 1080p monitor will be maxed by the 480, so no change in frames.

OP, what model monitor?

Did you install Windows on a clean partition when you got your motherboard? If not do so now

Did you install all chipset drivers when you installed Windows? If not do so now

Download cpu-z and see what temp the cpu is running at during the benchmark if over 80c it's probably throttling

I'm currently saving for a new motherboard and also an i7-9700k which should hopefully allow for the gpu to reach its full potential.
 
Download Intel XTU and select the stress test. Run the test for 5 minutes (it will take less if you have a cooling problem) and watch the temperature. If it gets to hot the CPU will throttle and the graphic will turn yellow. If it turns yellow on stock settings, then something is wrong with your cooler. Either it is not seated on the IHS properly or you have used too little/too much/or no thermal paste.
