Is my CPU faulty?

Hey guys so I am a first time builder. I have an issue where games are not performing the way I think they should be. Even though I do get a lot of fps (around 120+), the games like modern warfare, fortnite etc. do not feel smooth. Also when I aim in it feels like the cursor is stuttery when I make small and steady adjustments.

I play on a 60hz 1080 monitor and tried to lock the fps to many different caps to see how it effects things (ex 60,80,120,unlimited), they all feel different when playing games but none of them feel smooth/ the way I think they should.

I am basically asking for your opinion/advice of how to check if this a hardware issue, a monitor issue, or maybe a software or settings issue.

Lastly, my parts are

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
Motherboard: MSI MPG x570 Gaming Edge WIFI
GPU: Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 Super
SSD: Samsung 970 EVO M.2 NVMe
Memory: Corsair Vengance LPX 2x8GB DDR4 DRAM 3200

Here are the link to my latest benchmark:
I have ran CINEBENCH and it looks like my CPU is underperforming. I am getting a scores like 3056, 2978.

Please advise if it is possible that my parts are bottle-necked or how I can check if I really do have a faulty part. Let me know if I can provide more info.

No your gear is not faulty.

Buy a freesync monitor or gsync monitor,that would work.

Turn on Vsync on the 60Hz monitor so it only runs at 60FPS.Since you have a Nvidia card there are many options in the control panel.

Dont run vsync, vsync will add input lag and ruin the experience in games like he's playing, vsync is terrible with FPS games. Are your frames consistent or do they bounce around a ton? with a 3600 and a 2070 I would think you should be able to easily get 60 frames consistently and I would think you should be able to be rock solid at 60 because that setup is capable of much more at 1080. Im not sure what kind of smooth you are looking for but if you have played at over 100 frames, on a 144 hz monitor that is capable of showing it, for a period of time, 60 just isn't going to look as smooth. It doesn't sound like that's the case though so I'm not sue aht smooth you are comparing it to.

+1 on leaving Vsync off for FPS games.

I was playing the new modern warfare on old hardware and had no stutters or lag. You should be having a silky smooth experience with what you've listed as specs.

Maybe try booting to safe mode & using Display Driver Uninstaller to remove video drivers - Then reinstall the video driver when you boot back to windows. I've heard that Geforce Experience can create problems with games where there weren't problems before so it looks like it's best to not install it.

Maybe try using MSI afterburner to check utilization of CPU / Memory / GPU during gaming. That will indicate if your getting a bottleneck anywhere by checking percentage levels.

turn on vsync from the Nvidia drivers ( global settings ), play your games in fullscreen turn off vsync from in game settings.
i had this similar issue with Path of Exile (showed 200+ fps but felt like 40), doing this fixed it ( Using an RX Vega 56 ) with a Freesync 144hz monitor.
