    Hi All

    My brother and I have just test both our systems on 3dmark timespy.

    My Specs -
    CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 1600X 3.6Ghz
    Motherboard - AsRock Fatal1ty X370 Gaming K4
    RAM - G.Skill 8GB DDR4 2400mhz
    Video Card - MSi 1060 Gaming X 6GB GTX
    HDD - 250GB SSD

    Brother Specs -
    CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 1600X 3.6Ghz
    Motherboard - Asus ROG Strix B350-F Gaming
    RAM - G.Skill 16GB DDR4 3000mhz
    Video Card - Radeon R9 290
    HDD - 250GB SSD

    My CPU scored 6187 with an average FPS of 20 , he scored 3600 with an average FPS of 12.

    Any reason as to what could be causing almost double the CPU score on one system when they're both almost identical apart from GPU and RAM which I wouldn't imagine would cause that much of a difference in the CPU score?

    Cheers!

    Check that the CPU is running at the right clock speeds and its not stuck at a lower speed than it should be

    Is his overheating?

    Latest bios on both?

    His PC have more background programs like AV running?

    Thank you for all the replies.

    So both running updated BIOS.
    Both temperatures are fine, neither over heating.
    All programs closed when bench marking on both computers.
    Defiantly looking at CPU score not total / GPU score.

    Thought it was strange? not a massive deal I guess but you would imagine as far as the CPU score goes they'd be nearly identical? Or at the very least not almost double in score difference..

    At stock clocks, I get 5647 with an avg fps of 18.97fps in TimeSpy with an R5 1600.... Definitely something wrong if his score is lower than mine.

    Try his CPU in your system if it still scores low it's a duff CPU
