Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and relatively new to building my own pc. I'm looking for some reliable benchmarks I can test my cpu with along with the ballpark that a normally functioning FX 8350, unmodded, should be in.
I want to do these tests because lately I've been having reason to suspect something's off. For instance today I did a couple hours of music production in ableton and after I closed it I went to play Metal Gear Revengeance on steam and when I did it was really laggy, unlike the night before when it was very fast. I then restarted my computer and just opened the game and it ran fine.
I'm not sure what is causing this but why would it happen? Is memory getting eaten up and not being dumped after I close applications or is this a cpu issue or something I'm not even aware of?
I'm running Win7x64 and I have a Radeon 7970 along with 16GB of corsair ram at 1600Mhz.
So yah if you can recommend some reliable benchmarks to run just to rule out the cpu that would be awesome and if you have any insight other than that I'd be happy to hear it. Thanks.
