Hi just finished my first build and everything is running smoothly but the 2700x is under performing for some reason. I have the wraith prism that came with it and running at stock speeds and in Cinebench r15 only got 1527 when I see it should be 1800-1900. Same in UserBenchmark where the single core score is standard but it gets a low score in multi core performance and is only 30th percentile for CPU bench.
I checked in RyzenMaster when running Cinebench and it showed that when all cores are engaged the speed goes down to 3.1-3.3 instead of the usual 3.7-4.0 and the temperature goes to 84c with fan engaged 100%. UserBenchmark software didn't stress the CPU to high temps but also report low score. What might be going on?
I've tried reapplying the paste, making sure the cooler is clamped all the way down, case cooling should be fine with 3 front intake and 2 exhausts. Also turned on PBO and SM and tuned RAM speed to max but see little gains. What else can I check to make sure that it's a bad CPU or some other factors?
