GTX 780 2-way or 3-way SLI - Page 3

I went with the 2-way 780 gtx and I love it. Most games I get 120+ FPS on 144hz monitor. Crysis 3 ran about 90+FPS.

It's been a while since I've ran my set up, and I am running 3DMark. My CPU (i5-4670k)seems to be bottle-necking my 780 GTX SLI with 3.4gHz. So I tried to overclock it but I had gotten a below average CPU maxing out at 4.1 gHz clock speed. Which still seems to still be bottle-necking my SLI. I really want full potential out of my cards, is it a good idea to bump up to i7-4770k?

i5-4670K is not bottle-necking SLI 780's....
and 4.1GHz, you considered that an overclock.?

Hey! I'm still a noobie. But my results told me on Fire Strike Extreme "Brawn: Your GPU is ready to rumble, but your CPU doesn't want to play."

My CPU would Blue Screen with anything above 4.3gHz at 1.25v
When I did 4.2gHz It would boot, but would freeze during stability tests such as ADIA64 and Prime95.
Finally at 4.1 ran ADIA64 and Prime95 for 18 hours stable.

try adding more voltage for a higher clock then 4.3GHz @ 1.25v, you might just have a 'not so good' chip and requires more voltage.

More voltage here I come, right now I get 60-70C full load 1.250v. I don't want to pass 80C, I'll let you know how that goes.
