Hey guys so I Have a Ryzen 3 1200, GTX 1050ti, 860 EVO SSD, 2x8 3000mhz Corsair vengeance LPX ram and a A320 motherboard from gigabyte.

So I was playing around and decided to use MSI afterburner to monitor temps and FPS. I noticed that my cpu (Ryzen 3 1200) was running below its factory clock at around 2.8ghz. (Factory Clock is 3100). I went to task manager and it says that I have 3.10ghz but is only running at 2.75-2.8. I went into the bios and checked the frequency and it was at the normal 3.10. I have no clue what to do, I searched all over the internet and asked some friends and they don’t even have a clue. Any help? Thanks

Modern CPU's all downclock so you will need to run something cpu intensive to get her back up to speed so you can see it in Afterburner.
Well I was testing it in Grand Theft Auto 5 and the CPU was at around 80-100 Usage with it showing 2800mhz. It didn’t change at all or go up

it might be that you might have decrese the power delivery to the CPU. The CPU downclocks while being idle to a low speed but looking at the gaming performance you might have tuned the settings in the MSI afterburner.

3100 MHz is a peak boost clock for a single core load, while most WIndows gaming loads today use all 4 cores at a lower speed...such as you are now seeing..
No that is the base clock the peak boost clock for this CPU is 3.4GHz. Yes that is for a single core but the base clock of all the core at base must be 3.1GHz or similar add or subtract 100MHz
