    i5 6500 severely underperforming

    xstayhungry

      I recently built my first PC using the Intel i5-6500 CPU. I noticed it is dramatically underperforming performance tests, and figure something must not be set up properly. What do I need to do to get the CPU to perform as expected?

       

      Here is my build:
