Actually there are plenty of reasons, and none of them have anything to do with the client.

I can use an i7-3930k from 11 years ago with a GTX1060 6GB and not dip below the 40's. As long as the system is properly optimized and there isn't any conflicting software.

Maybe it's time for you to figure out what is bottlenecking your system.

I'm on a ryzen5 1600 with 32GB ram. And I just did a fresh install of windows a few months ago. I got screen recording software that runs automatically at startup, so I'll try turning that off. Other than that, I have no idea what could possibly be bottlenecking my system.
  • Incorrect hardware configuration (RAM timing being wrong is pretty common)
  • System bloat installed by your system/motherboard manufacturer. Some of these are keyed to install with Windows, so your "clean" install may not be as clean as you think.
  • Security software installed on the system is a pretty common issue. Turning it off often isn't enough. You need to actually exclude the client. (This is covered in detail in the Troubleshooting thread pinned in the Support section.-
  • That CPU is pretty old, and doesn't properly support the multithreading the client requires. It's well documented that limiting the client to four physical cores on your system will have a huge boost in performance.

That's just a short list off the top of my head. I could go into more detail with probably twenty or thirty other things, but don't have the time atm.
