Hi everyone,

I just got a new GPU + CPU and I mainly play Warzone. However, I noticed that my frames are stuck around 130 to 150 FPS. I play in Competitive settings (Most settings are set to Normal) in 1440P. I used to have a 2070 super with a Ryzen 3600 and I would get around 90FPS.
I watched many benchmark videos, for example,

I should be getting avg around 170 FPS ideally since I am not playing in Ultra settings. While in-game, I noticed my GPU usage sits around 70% to 80%.

I have overclocked my GPU and I have watched many videos and tried tweaking my settings in GeForce experience and I have had no luck. Does anyone know why my frames are performing lower than expected? Any advice is highly appreciated!
  • CPU: AMD RYZEN 5600X
  • GPU: RTX 3080 TI FE ( Ensured GPU-Z shows PCIe x16 Gen 4)
  • RAM: 4 x 8GB @ 3200MHZ (Ensured XMP + it's running at 3200MHZ)
  • PSU: EVGA 750 GQ, 80+ GOLD 750W, Semi-Modular
  • Memory: Samsung 970 EVO SSD 500GB - M.2 NVMe
  • Motherboard: ASUS AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi) ATX
This is my build's benchmark and my graphics card looks to be performing at 97th percentile: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/46639265

3D Mark Test Result ( Did this while my GPU is at default setting)

Try with only 2 sticks of ram in the slots that are suggested in your motherboard's manual (usually 2nd and 4th).

Make sure you close any and every other program that is running in the background that is not needed.

Your mixed ram may be causing the reduced performance you get, or you may be thermal throttling a bit. What is your CPU cooler and what temps do you get idle and while gaming?

Thanks for the help! Let me try to remove the two RAMs and see if there are any improvements.
I use the Scythe Fuma 2 CPU Air Cooler.
Idle CPU temp is around 40 - 45C, In-game is around 63 - 67C
In-game GPU - 70 - 76C

Manually set your fan speeds
