Hello, my ryzen 5 2600 is not boosting to the right clock speeds. (I think)
Online is see that their ryzen chip is boosting in games to 3750Mhz. My chip is only boosting to 3625Mhz.
In high workloads such as cinebench r15 it is downclocking itself to 3400/3550Mhz.

I don't get why that is, the cpu is being watercooled by the corsair h60 (2018 edition).

My specs:
Mobo:Gigabyte aorus elite b450
Ram: 16gb corsair vengance lpx ddr4 2666Mhz

What is your PSU?
Your CPU is working fine. R5 2600 has a base clock of 3.4 GHz and a Boost clock of 3.9 GHz. The boost clock is usually temporary and when the CPU gets hot it automatically downclocks itself to meet temp requirements. If you've seen it clock higher than yours it's because those systems were cooled better than yours.

If you cool you system with better case airflow or buy a non-stock CPU cooler then you will also be able to hit higher clocks.
