Describe your issue:
Problem solved, CPU was stuck at 1500 MHz, and has been for over 1 year (I haven't experienced the full CPU power for 1 year...) and I took it out and reinstalled it and it's good now.
Yeah, I'm getting the performance I expected in games, and I upgraded to a
ryzen 5 2600 and it's even better. With my old CPU it always seemed to get
slightly lower fps that benchmarks online and I never noticed the 1500MHz
on the CPU. Bios always said 3.1GHz, but radeon settings and nzxt cam both
said 1.5 ghz. I'm glad its solved now though.
