Surely nothing can stop my 5.0 suicidal run 2500K right?

I highly doubt that a 2500k would bottleneck that setup. and the graphics cards would not bottleneck the OC capabilities of the cpu either.

So you're good. (Y)

At 1080p, in many... many titles it will bottleneck on the cpu.

No, there shouldn't be any bottleneck with your i5 2500K.

the 2500k is one of the highest overclocking chips around. there shouldnt be any card(s) that bottneck a 2500k in games, because with 1 or 2 cores (which most games are optimized for), you're giving it 5/10ghz worth of power (at least)

It's four gpus at 1080p, of course it's going to bottleneck.

So what CPU won't bottleneck a game with (say) 2 threads with one of the highest clocks around. It might bottleneck at the 100fps mark...but you certainly won't be complaining youre getting 20 fps because of your cpu...

I almost quoted you saying that you're wrong when I took another look and realized he was talking about a quad SLI/CF setup not simple SLI/CF.

Yes, its gonna bottleneck thats for sure.

Only difference is that your FPS will be so high that it won't really matter. And as time goes by and more demanding games come out, you'll still have the HP to play them maxed out till the point where 4 cores really aren't enough. Then you'll have to upgrade your CPU.

Ugh...

So he should buy $1400 in gpus because 100 fps is your idea of not bottlenecking? He could spend less and get the same results.

Quad SLI/CF is pointless at 1080p, even with a i5-2500k it will bottleneck and money will have been wasted.
