Just recently built a PC with the following specs: R5 1600, Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX1060 3GB, 8GB 3000MHz RAM, 250GB SSD. The PC has 2 140mm fans for intake at the front and 2 120mm fans as exhaust; one at the top and the other in the rear. I also have the Cryorig H7 quad Lumi for extra added performance and overclocking capability. I downloaded CS:GO today and wanted to see how well the PC would run it, and to my surprise, it ran horribly. At max settings, I was averaging 40fps, and at low settings I was averaging about 60fps. These results are worse than the laptop i upgraded from, as that ran CS at 80fps on low settings.
I've downloaded all necessary drivers for the GPU and motherboard. The PC is also immaculate, with absolutely no dust build-up at all. I'm currently using the NZXT CAM software to monitor performance. The VRAM usage is only 0.6GB and RAM usage is barely exceeding 1GB. CPU and GPU temps are also low at about 40 degrees when playing. I don't understand, it doesn't add up?
