Question surprisingly low clock speeds on 2080 super

Hi all, Recently i finished building a gaming pc. Everything turned out great, all my apps were downloaded, but i found a problem. I was getting unusually low fps on most games i play.(r6s, cs go, etc). I downloaded msi afterburner and checked GPU clock speeds when stress testing and they were w around 1100 mhz, which is way below average 2080 super performance. all temps were normal. I went on userbenchmark and everything is doing great but the gpu. I would really appreciate some help. Full system specs:
RTX 2080 SUPER GAMING X TRIO
RYZEN THREADRIPPER 1920X
VENGEANCE LPX 16GB(4X4GB) RAM 3000MHZ

Motherboard model is a x399 auorus pro and psu is coolermaster v750. Monitor is a acer xf250q 240hz gsync monitor. Only storage is a M.2 CRUCIAL P.1 with 1tb and read and writes up to 2000 mbs. Ill try to get the userbenchmark right now.

I have an RTX 2080 ti and with older games the GPU clock speed runs much lower than normal as they are not as demanding.
With newer games it runs at its normal clock speed though.

Try running a newer graphically intensive game and you will probably find it makes your GPU run at its normal clock speed

I don't have many new games to try it out on, but i tried opengl on cinebench and the clock speeds were just as low, so i don't think thats the case.

Which program do you use to monitor clock speeds SK?
I find MSI Afterburner to be very accurate during gaming and HWinfo64 during Windows or benchmarking.

I use msi afterburner to track clock speeds, and the speed is always below 1200 mhz. Hopping onto any benchmark or game my system heavily under performs.

Temps are about 60c on cpu during heavy load and about 50c for the gpu. I already mentioned the psu and what the monitor model in a above reply, and all fans are functioning.

MSI Afterburner did this with my old RX580 sometimes. I'm guessing it happened to open when the card was in low power mode or something. Just hit the reset button at the bottom and it will goto the normal mode. Make sure to check it again after updating your card drivers.
