Question Good Specs But Terrible Performance

Hello everyone! I've spent days trying to find an answer for this problem of mine. I have this PC I built and on paper it seems pretty sweet. Good hardware and its even water cooled. But I am getting some serious performance issues. I've seen videos of people with similar builds to mine run games at 60+ FPS @ 4K and yet I cant even squeeze out 30 FPS @ 1440 on Triple A games. Its becoming a real annoyance and I'm considering just starting over again and building a completely new rig. I am hoping someone here might be able to help me figure out what the issue might be. Everything is basically stock. I haven't overclocked besides using the standard OC mode that comes with the software for the GPU. I'll list my specs below by just copying and pasting their names as they appear on Newegg.com. Thanks again guys and I apologize ahead of time if I just happen to be missing an obvious answer. I'm still kinda new to the PC building.

I apologize for the confusion. By stock I mean nothing has been overclocked. The drivers are all updated. As far as temps go, both the CPU and GPU stay below 70 and are both liquid cooled. I will look into the BIOS to check on the status of XMP and get back with you. Thank you for your reply by the way!

Yes, the monitor is plugged into the GPU using a DP connection. When I run GPU stress test and video games the GPU is always @ 100% and the CPU stays very low. I guess you could call it a GPU bottleneck but the 2080ti should preform much better at 100% than what I’m seeing.
