thx frindis 🤝Normally there should not be any problems with a newly bought PC. If you boot it up and run games fine, then most likely everything is working as intended. To do a more in-depth check, I would recommend this:
- Press Win + R and type perfmon, then click OK
- Expand Data Collector Sets. Then Expand System folder
- Right-click on System Diagnostics and press Start
- Wait a minute
- Expand the reports folder, then System folder
- Under System Diagnostics you click on either the first or second DEKSTOP option to check for any warnings. If you get a warning, you will also get a possible solution for it.
Thank u zoid 👏🏻If you want to take a detailed look under the hood you can grab some hardware monitoring software. HWMonitor is a good one, as is MSI Afterburner if you want to monitor performance while gaming.
Thx man that was helpfulRunning some basic performance tests such as Cinebench and comparing your scores with what's expected for a system with your specs is another way to make sure everything is configured and working as expected.
The go-tos for me are futuremark's Firestrike and Timespy benchmarks.
And when gaming, use something like MSI Afterburner to keep an eye on temps, or HWinfo / Realtemp with logging if you're not too bothered about the on-screen overlay.
Likewise. I think Timespy isn't in the free one but can't quite recall But at least Firestrike itself will be and the rest is often on sale cheap-ish.I bought 3D Mark a long time ago I forgot it has a free edition.
