[SOLVED] Poor CPU Performance rating in benchmark

Getting below average performance rating for my cpu on benchmark site, with auto OC on (using ryzen master software) and no apps running,

https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/21159749

Want to know the reason why, also want to know if my ram model is possibly bottle-necking my cpu/system in anyway, it's CMK8GX4M1D3000C16 by Corsair.

Other hardware specs-
Motherboard - ASRock b450m pro4-f
PSU - Corsair VS450
Cooler - Antec C400

Thank you.

Aida64 is prob a good one to start with for simple, individual benches that you can compare. Download the free version. And run the benchmark tests. You can compare it directly to your own system in a number of different metrics, including CPU, GPU, Mem.

Cinebench R15/R20 are also good to test with. They push the CPU a little more, and are a real good indicator of performance.

If you want to stress test your system, you could use something like Prime95, but this is really only to determine voltage stability and max temps. OC'ers would use this info to OC their CPU out of spec, and thus give more performance. But I'm not necessarily telling you to stress test your system. Just some relevant info.

Check out the mem compatibility from your mobo manufacturers website: https://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/B450M Pro4-F/index.asp#MemoryPR

Well, you are missing out on dual channel by only having 1 stick of ram. The speed of the ram is fine. But in single channel mode you are losing anywhere from 10-25% performance task dependent, but specially for gaming. It's definitely worth having a 2 x 8gb matched kit in your system. You will feel a big boost.

it will help CPU/GPU/Mem scores in synthetic benches, and will feel more responsive too.

Also, although userbench is a useful guide for determining relative performance, it's not the best way to compare true performance of your parts to others.

What would be a good way to then? (Test parts), I stuck with 8gb cause I mostly never use beyond 8, as I run my game with a 32 bit client.

But ya I'm seriously considering upgrading to 16g of ram and possibly getting an AMD compatible one (if that even makes any difference) confused about the whole 'amd compatible ram' thing from AMD/Corsair etc..

Ryzen 5 3600
Supported memory: DDR4-3200

The third-generation Ryzen chips arrive with native support for the DDR4-3200 standard out of the box. You can still run faster memory if your processor's Integrated Memory Controller (IMC) and motherboard are up to the task. 3600MHz is a popular choice.

Using sub-par 3000MHz memory may help explain why you have poor CPU Performance rating in benchmark.

The minimum system requirements for the Radeon RX 570 is 500 watts. You don't meet that minimum requirement. Running a power supply at maximum output for extended periods of time can result in premature failure of the power supply.

I ran Aida64, Cinebench and some more benches, and have attached the results, pls review,
