  1. Go to msi's website and use this tool to find your chipset drivers. Also a single stick 2133 ram is the worst possible setup for a ryzen CPU.

  2. From what I've heard, AMD Ryzen Master is your best bet for understanding temps on Ryzen CPUs. https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/ryzen-master

    You're running Ryzen on a single channel of 2133MHz RAM... Is there a lot of stutter, or is it a smooth yet low framerate?

    Games runs smooth not lot of stutter but here and there sometimes it happens but not much.

  4. RYZEN scales up to roughly 3200MHz DDR4 memory.

    (to simplify I'll just call that 2x1600MHz, as in Dual Channel for "3200MHz" is double the bandwidth of one stick alone)

    You are at an effective 1065MHz in comparison. The cheapest solution would be to get another, identical stick of memory and set it up in DUAL CHANNEL (see motherboard manual).

    The best performance you can get would be to get a 2x8GB 3200MHz kit that is CONFIRMED to work properly with your exact motherboard. Some motherboard currently have issues going above 2133 or 2400Mhz (dual channel) and may need a BIOS update now or later when more updates fix the compatibility issues.

    (I'm not saying there couldn't be other issues with your gaming performance but your DDR4 memory bandwidth certainly is an issue)

  5. You still need to get on msi's website and get the chipset drivers, and update your bios

    I downloaded this http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/chipsets/am4 and still no luck still getting around 40 - 55 fps.
