[SOLVED] R5 3600 paired with 16gbs of 3000mhz ram

So basically, I've noticed that my pc is underperforming a lot recently with games and such running on 1080p when I should get a ton more fps. I've been trying real hard to try to find out what's causing this in my build and I'm frankly not quite sure what is. My current build is:
R5 3600
LPX 16GB 3000mhz
Asus Rog Strix b450-e Gaming
3080 Asus TUF GAMING
Corsair RM650 80+ GOLD
AMD Stockcooler

I noticed the underperformance from various games such as BF5 (barely playable on 1080p with high settings or even with RTX on), Warzone (60-90 fps on 1080p high settings), Minecraft (120 fps on 1080p), and also Leauge of Legends only getting around 230fps.

I've read a couple new threads on reddit where people stated that they had the same issue but when they upgraded to an R5 5600x that they got a fat increase in performance. I really want to invest in that CPU but I can't due to financial struggles.

So I thought well what can I upgrade instead to get an increase? I believe that I should get 3600mhz ram but is it really worth it?

BTW I would love it if someone could help me fix this annoying underperformance because it's making me feel like <Mod Edit> since I spent so much on the computer overtime :/

@ThaSpoda

your cpu is not bottlenecking your gpu:

your cpu is not weak for rtx3080.

but you're using stockcooler which is ....

take your temps. Use geekbench to put your cpu under stress. does it get to 100% usage in task manager? At the same time, Use Ryzen Master to see your CPU temperature:

https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/ryzen-master


So you'll test your cpu with geekbench. it will give a score. then we'll see if that score is what 5600 must give. You probably get too hot and can't reach the full potential of your current cpu.

https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/5583898 the maximum temp it reached was 83 degrees celsius and it used circa 70% of the cpu

From what you say, there are two possibilities. rtx3080 is very power hungry, may be 650w power supply is not enough for it. But you were just stressing the cpu, not with gpu together.


Second and most probable is: You take temps with Ryzen Master right? Inside temperature gauge, what's written as limit temp? I suspect you're in eco mode.

Yeah I think you're somehow set to eco mode, either by BIOS or a software. Because eitherwise you must reach 100%
