Why is my Ryzen 3 1300x performing so poorly?

I recently decided to upgrade my cpu with the goal of improved framerate in Overwatch.


My old setup was as follows:


MSi AMD 970 Gaming MoBo

AMD FX-8350 4.2GHz

GTX 1060-3Gb

Samsung 850 Evo 500Gb

8Gb G.Skill Ares DDR3 1866


I would regularly average around 90-120 fps playing on low settings


Now my setup is as follows:


MSi B350M Pro-VDH MoBo

AMD Ryzen 3 1300X

GTX 1060-3Gb

Samsung 850 Evo 500Gb

Corsair Vengeance LPX 8Gb DDR4-2666 MHz


Now I'm lucky to get a stable 25 fps and the game is all but unplayable.

I don't understand why there has been such a performance drop when the 1300x should be an improvement. Any help with troubleshooting would be appreciated.
