Hey, I just bought a Gainward 3080 Ti Phoenix and tried a few benchmarks in Far Cry 5 with ultra settings on 4K and got "only":
92 low; 102 average (always around 100 FPS); 122 max; Frames drawn 6000
Other than that I have i9 9900k 5.0 GHz on all cores, basic 3200 Kingston 32 GB ram, and some Samsung SSD.
GPU temp maxed at 81°C btw.
I saw that other people with 3080 OC were getting around 115 FPS on average, which is a huge difference (my 2080 ti Asus had around 80 FPS on average).
What do you guys think might be the problem? Or do you think it's fine?
Thanks in advance.

Don't know for certain, but at 81 degrees I'd imagine it's down-clocking in order to keep itself from getting too hot; those temps might be the problem.

Yeah, I have everything set on auto and my cpu is absolutely fine (around 50-70°C when gaming). Don't know what's the problem.
You have a CPU that can draw more than 200 watts of power and a GPU that can draw more than 300 watts of power exhausting all of that waste heat inside your tower; unless you have good airflow, that heat is going to build up.

Yep, so I have Fractal Design Define R6 with threir stock fans (they are really good) and I haven't had any issues before with my 2080 ti. One in the back, 2 in the front.

The 2080 Ti has an official TDP of 250 watts. The 3080 Ti has an official TDP of 350 watts. That's a not insignificant amount of additional waste heat to remove from a graphics card.

Expecting your 3080 Ti to be fine just because your 2080 Ti was is comparing apples to oranges. Your 3080 Ti needs all the help it can get to cope with that extra heat.

Only one exhaust fan isn't nearly enough to deal with all that heat, trust me I know. I took a look at your tower; there's room on top for more case fans. I highly recommend you install more case fans on top.

Okay, I'll, thx. Will see if it helps.

Guys, I managed to overclock my GPU + lower the temps to around 65°C max while gaming for a short period of time and max around 70°C if gaming for a longer period.
MSI afterburner did the job. Max speed increased from 1775 Mhz to 2010 Mhz (with no blue screen - stable) and ram speed +200 Mhz.
There are still 2 things that I need to sort out:
  1. Nvidia broadcast - If It's running in the background, it literally takes 100% of my GPU with around 1600 Mhz if I'm not doing anything else like playing.
  2. My main competitive game is CS:GO and whenever I go to any server, my FPS drop to average 200 FPS (normally 5v5 I have around 350-700 FPS).
