well I was playing games that were very easy to run such as LOL but I just played the modern warfare beta and was hovering around 70 fps on max settings. I like to have the nicest visuals while playing but it seems games don't support sli anymore so the other 980ti is uselessBut what kind of games will you play with this?
the 4790k is still a fast processor its no slouch, for 1440p 165hz the 2080 Ti should do nicely.Im running a 1440p monitor with 165hz refresh rate. Also because its a z97 platform i have ddr3 ram (32gb) would that be a bottle neck. It runs at 1866mhz but if i try to raise it higher my system crashes.
just done a 3d mark time spy benchmark and noticed that my cpu goes to 100 degrees, ive noticed that years ago my cpu ran on the hotter side but 100 is too much on a h100i cooler
According to pc-builds.com YES
Which cooling mode are you using? The h100 should be getting pretty loud if it lets a 4790k to get that hot. You also might want to consider using an app like CPUID HWMonitor to confirm the temp numbers you are getting are accurate.
I have not overclocked it but it boosted up to 4.4ghz from what I see. I've tried in the past to change the thermal paste but it gives the same results and I have made sure that the h100i corsair cooler is making good contact with the cpu. If i take off the cooler i can see that the paste has been spread evenly and should indicate that there was good contact. It might be the cooler itself I spouse since i have never tired another cooler.
