Check out what LinusTechTips uses. For my post at https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/im-upgrading-some-old-iron-what-would-you-like/ I used the usual titles.

You can see my results.

If you are having issues, we use the Web Speccy to start along with your story and the PSU, make and model.

PS. I forgot to note that in my trials, I did use performance testing apps. Furmark, UserBenchMark for example. Since I was interested also in the power consumed my Watt meter was there all during the tests.
