I have a 2011-3 socket in the Rampage V Edition 10 X99 motherboard. Currently with a i7 6800k that doesn't keep up. Also have a Strix 1070 graphics card and 48GB of RAM. DCS is my most hardware heavy game. I don't do any rendering. I can get DCS to run but only on lower settings. Biggest change is resolution. Going from 1920x1080 to 1360x768 and even then the system runs sub par in DCS. Better performance but not ideal. Yes, that is in multiplayer and my internet isn't the greatest but...I think the CPU's lack of performance is a contributing factor. Not sure what CPU I should switch to.

Thanks

I should add that I shut my PC off last night and it won't boot this morning. 00 Q-code which usually means no CPU. I took that out and did the paste again and reseated the CPU. I do have a CPU installation tool. Tried resetting CMOS. Nothing.

Thanks again!

No replies yet. What I'm asking is, what CPU would best work for today's gaming with that socket. I'm not committed to changing the motherboard just yet so changing sockets is out of the question right now.
