To the post above me that pc is beutiful.

My gpu fan didnt kick in today playing gta v and the game slowed down to 30 fps. Turns out it was running at 94 c and fans not spinning. For some reason gpu tweak didnt fan work at all for the fan profile I set and tested.

Im using msi afterburner to set a good fan profile now and its working well again. I hate the idea of damaging it by heat.

But I think what you've posted shows my I5-6600k@4.5ghz is getting close to being bottlenecked at my 4.5ghz mark with the 1080 overclocked because its hitting a point of diminishing returns.


I'm also running at 2560/1440.

I'm already aware that any i5 would lead us down a bit in CPU-intensive games, even at 4.9GHz, but I've just searched for 1080 benchmarks again and after watching the link above I would still say you shouldn't being bottlenecked by your CPU in your scenario at least. Heaven is barely touching the extra 4 threads of i7. Can't figure out what's going on ....

The post above you is mine and I don't find my PC beautiful - it's ugly forest of cables atm, it's a test bench biggrin.gif But the one I quote, yes, it's very nice (the water cooled one).

Nice tip about the nail polish to isolate the surroudings of the die...

Another question: For those using an AIO solution designed for CPUs. The fact that the waterblock isn't completely flat (because CPU's IHS aren't completely flat) would be a problem if using liquid metal like CLU, that should be applied in a very thin layer? I mean, would it make complete contact with the GPU die?

Not sure about lm, but normal paste applies very nice. Its perfectly able to fill small imperfections of the block.

Installing evga 1080 FTW on Windows 7, been using AMD 295x2 for nearly 2 years,

Aside from the gpu driver, is there anything else I need to upgrade, like chipsets, or tweak, just asking, want to do this right and avoid complaining later because I missed a step simply for not asking biggrin.gif
