I play Rainbow six siege and I am getting around 130-160 fps on low/medium settings but feel I should be getting more out of my build than I currently am.
Specs: i7 4790k, GTX 1080 FTW, Samsung 850 evo, 16 gb RAM, z97 pro gamer motherboard and EVGA 650W power supply.
I overclocked my CPU 4.5 and my temps are sitting at around 50c. Usage for my CPU and GPU is around 80% in game. I play 1920/1080 144htz
I'm a noob when it comes to computers but I feel as though my game should be hitting more than 150 FPS on low/medium settings.
All drivers are up to date and I have Win7 but upgrading to Win10 shortly (Could this be an issue?)
Or is all this normal for my computer?

There should not be any compatibility issues(hardware wise) with your system. Since your drivers are up-to-date, no point in recommending that. I would verify that your game is up to date on the latest patch(if applicable).

You would get better performance with Windows 10 then Windows 7, especially considering that 10 is more 'game friendly' and has the latest Direct X support.

Game and everything is up to date. I will upgrade to Win10 soon. I thought I could be hitting 200 fps consistently on low/medium settings but I'll see if it's a Win7 problem.

At high settings my FPS is around 110-140. My monitor (Benq xl 2430t) doesn't have g-sync and v-sync is turned off in game. There is not much of a performance difference when running at max settings compared to low which is confusing.

Yes, that is the reason I asked the question. If the fps doesn't change much between high and medium settings, that usually means that the video card is not the issue.

Can you go to the windows power option and set the power to High Performance mode for me and let me know if there's a difference?

I already had the high performance mode activated. I will just back up my PC then wipe it clean and redownload everything with windows 10. Not sure what else to try at this point. Thanks
