Hello, I have built a pc about 3 months ago(specs in the link),I have noticed that my components are performing "below expectations":https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/28160463. about 3 months ago, I ran a benchmark and I got a 108% on workstation, 98% on gaming, and around 100% on desktop, I have recently downloaded a motherboard driver from MSI dragon center and since then I had worse performance, I decided to format my pc, and then when ran a benchmark on userbenchmark, the results were worse. what should I do?

Agreed on ignoring the expectations crap.
Userbenchmark is run by Intel shills, and the app is biased towards Intel cpus.

IT DOES HAVE IT'S USES, but measuring performance isn't one of them.

The only thing out of place is that your 3900X's turbo was the same as the base clock.

Vsync, Gsync or Freesync is typically the cause for low performance on the GPU, disable it.

During the benchmark I'd use the AMD Ryzen Master app to monitor the CPU temps as it is kind of odd it isn't boosting above the base clock speed.

As for the results I wouldn't really worry, as @Phaaze88 stated the site is a bit biased. It does work well though in some situations were a system is poorly performing and the culprit was due to A/XMP not being enabled in the BIOS which does show up on the report. Low clock speeds could also be due to thermal throttling temps so Userbenchmark does have some usefulness.

Edit: I deleted the MSI Dragon software on my laptop(MSI GF63) and it increased performance a bit.

wdym,I didn't overclock it, just a few times for some benchmarks, but it is in stock speed at all times.

It is good for comparing your system of today vs next week.
It is not good comparing to other systems. Those are overclocked to the hilt, software and options customised and optimised for getting that uber benchmark number.

Yeah I know, I used ryzen master for some overclocking, the highest temp was 70c when I did that benchmark, I made a profile and I set it to 3.8Ghz that's probably why it said turbo 3.8ghz
