Hi, I am a decently avid gamer, I mostly enjoy Rainbow 6 Siege which is a fairly CPU intensive game rather than GPU intensive. I have an i9-9900K with a Zotac RTX 2080ti on a Z390 Designare. I am having large issues with getting above 200-250 frames on Low settings with both Overclocking the CPU, Overclocking the GPU, Running base on both, Overclocking CPU increasing and decreasing the voltage loadline to the CPU, and only overclocking the GPU. I have done both max settings and low settings and can't seem to find a sweet spot. I have a Corsair AX1200i, as well as a 512GB M.2Pce, and 256GB Samsung Evo 960s running in Raid:0. The game is on the Samsungs, and all windows functions and most drivers and 3rd party software is on the M.2. I have a 240hz monitor which is the only reason i would like to try to get consistently above 250fps.

Sorry, I also have 64GB of ram on 16x4 Corsair Vengeance LPX-3200 MHz. 360mm Liquid cooling through Captain 360(ex)x? I just dont understand how I am only getting 200 Fps while my friends with lesser builds are sitting closer to 300. I can post User benchmark stats. I just am wondering how I can get better fps because it seems I should be able to.

I've gone back and forth. Ive played both at 1920x1080, and ive played at 1600x900 stretched, as well as 1280x960black bars, going back and forth between high and low settings at all of them. Ive also made sure not to have my FPS capped in game by setting fps max 0 in my game files. I ran a 3245marks on the Intel Xtreme Tuning Utility with no OC.

yea exactly, i know thats why im confused. A 5 year old game thats completely unoptimized and i cant get 250fps at 900p. Here are my User Benchmark Stats.
UserBenchmarks: Game 152%, Desk 141%, Work 144%
CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K - 103.5%
GPU: Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti - 202.8%
SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe PCIe M.2 250GB - 260.9%
SSD: Intel Raid 0 Volume 512GB - 187.2%
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 C16 4x16GB - 104.5%
MBD: Gigabyte GA-Z390 DESIGNARE-CF

Edit: Side note, anyway to make sure that my watercooling is working correctly? I feel as though my cpu is running a little hot, even when not OC'ed.

OP, the only thing wrong with your PC is the resolution you're playing at.
Get either a 1440p, or 4k monitor, or things won't improve.
The 2080Ti was not intended for low resolution gaming PCs. There isn't a cpu available that can keep pace with it in that situation...
Even the mighty 9900k falls to it's knees at 1080p and lower.

You have a monitor bottleneck.
