We run benchmarks on every new release here, but what about you? When you build a new PC or swap out a piece, do you run fresh benchmarks? A high CPU overclock benchmark does make for a good bragging point....
I assure you I would be extremely happy to run benchmarks upon getting a new piece of hardware! Please see the closeup picture of my build for details: Sign of the Times #MicroCenterMadness - Micro Center Build
Yes, I 100% run benchmarks when I install new hardware or start noticing performance issues.
Ran one the other day and noticed my GPU was stuck at around 750 MHz scoring very poorly on Superposition. A few updates and uninstalling some useless software helped it recover.
I would highly recommend running benchmarks and find some comparisons online to ensure you are getting average performance for the components in the build.
I wouldn't say I really run benchmarks, I just kind of use the computer normally and see what happens.
