Did AMD Ryzen Master make my Ryzen 5 1600 worse? How can I go back to stock settings if so?

Hi, so I just got a new gaming desktop about a week ago with the specs of:



GTX 1060 3GD5

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 6 core 3.20gz

I've been testing it out with DOOM (2016) and can play on Ultra with a mostly consistent 60FPS (vsync) until recently. 


I know how to update my GPU drivers so I wondered if I needed to potentially download drivers for my CPU so I googled and the only one I found was called AMD Ryzen Master which I didn't realize was only overclocking software until after I had downloaded it. 


While I don't think I changed anything in there (I uninstalled it almost immediately because again, I know nothing about PC hardware and i'm not looking to overclock or change from stock), I went back to DOOM and started getting a lot of FPS issues all of a sudden, even areas where it was dropping from 60FPS to 30FPS which I don't think had happened at all prior. 


Is it possible I could have changed some settings by mistake and possibly made my CPU run worse and therefore my games as a result? If so, how can I go back to the stock settings to where nothing was changed at all? I've uninstalled and re-installed it several times now trying to check and I had tried clicking on reset/default but that said it would restart and i'm worried about clicking on anything I don't know about that could make it worse.


Sorry if this is a dumb question, I tried looking it up but couldn't find anything. Thank you for the help if possible!
