System is slower after hardware upgrade?

  1. Hello!
    I think I have wrote down everything in the title. My system is slower after an hardware upgrade, than before. Sometimes it's way better, than the previous, but most of the time it's more slower and more laggy.
    What can cause that and how can I solve the problem?


    Previous components:
    Mobo: MSI A55M-E33 FM2+
    CPU: AMD Athlon X4 860K
    RAM: 1x4+1x8 GB
    GPU: MSI RX560 4GB
    HDD: Toshiba DT01ACA050
    500W PSU
    Windows 10 1803

    Current components:
    Mobo: ASRock AB350M Pro4 R.20
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 1200
    RAM: 2x8 GB 2400MHz Kingston HyperX
    GPU: MSI RX560 4GB
    HDD: Toshiba DT01ACA050
    500W PSU
    Windows 10 1903


    I think I should get more FPS than 150-200 in CSGO for example, on 1024x768 with low graphics settings.
    I fully reinstalled Windows after the upgrade, and I've updated all drivers (I think atleast, and device manager shows that, too)

    I would expect the change in CPU to give you a somewhat noticeable improvement (stats say maybe +60%, but the GPU is possibly throttling your experience). The RAM, especially if now set for multi-channel in BIOS, should give some added improvement.
    See https://pc-builds.com/calculator/ for bottleneck calculator.
