  1. It is stock, and like explained above... I have no experience with overclocking so it is uncharted water for me.
  2. I mean when I built this I was hoping to max my monitors refresh of 144. I usually use the settings the game recommends for my hardware and also what GeForce experience recommends. However, some games I have change some settings to help boost performance. I play WOW for example and as crappy as those graphics are compared to other games I'm still not maxing my frames, which is frustrating and surprising to me. Yes, I believe all of my drivers are up-to-date. I have not tried XMP. My computer is not running overclocked on anything. Most games will use maybe half of my memory at most? Also while playing I track GPU, CPU, and RAM usage percentage and temps. I have never used more than 30% of my CPU and my temps remain cool while some games on my GPU the load will reach the 90's and temps max at 71 degrees. I have no experience with overclocking which is why I am running everything at stock. I have heard that overclocking can reduce the life of my components and I also don't want to run into temp issues. EX: on HLL my GPU the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti OC will already run at 71 degrees and I was under the impression that going higher could damage components. But I'm open to suggestions.
  3. My build: CPU: Intel Core I9-9900k GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti MOBO: Gigabyte Aorus Pro WIFI-CF RAM: 4 x GSKILL 3200C16 - 8GB Storage: Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB Cooler: Corsair H115i So I recently built this and my computer runs most games standard on ultra settings. I built this mainly for games and what not and on some games like Hell Let Loose (HLL), I'm disappointed in the overall FPS and performance. I understand HLL may not be optimized yet, but games like Squad, COD, Escape From Tarkov, I'm not getting the FPS I thought I would get. My temps are decent and during most demanding games the temps get max 71 degrees. My question is, is my PC not as powerful as I thought it would be? Also I'm assuming that streamers run all of their games on the lowest settings because some of these guys are getting maxed out frames constant and when I look at their rigs components, I'm unimpressed. Do I need to run everything on low to get these high frames?
  4. ya i wont be doing that. If I'm playing a FPS I most likely will have not even have that monitor turned on. But during eve or dota or something slower I will so I figure it wont affect me that much
  5. Okay thank you, I just found a page that stated that depending on what im doing on the second monitor it could affect FPS. I need to figure out how good my GPU is and how to optimize my entire system to work at its best because on HLL: im not getting 100 fps steady and I am a little disappointed in my GPU's overall performance. I thought this GPU would be getting me steadily high frames but it seems to only max out my frames at 144 on EVE which is not GPU intensive at all.
  6. Okay, and should I connect it via hdmi or DPI
  7. I have a I9-9900k, GeForce RTX 2080Ti 11 gb and 32 gb of ram. I have one 27 inch monitor connected currently. I have a second asus 27 inch monitor that I was going to return and my question is if I try to do a dual monitor setup will it affect my performance in games. My reference would be the game Hell Let Loose. While playing HLL my GPU is usually running at like 90% usage and thats mainly because HLL isnt optimized yet (early release game). . I dont want to have a dual monitor setup if its going to affect my performance on games. I play eve and WOW and other non GPU intensive games and I wouldnt mind being able to browse the internet or have discord up on the side or something. I have no experience with dual monitors so any help would be much appreciated.
  8. by value, you mean I spent a lot when I could have spent less for the same performance?
  9. Well what a disappointment, spent a ton of time researching and putting this thing together.
  10. Okay so I did it again and when I clicked stress cpu I looked at another section showing it was clocking between 4697-4701
  11. ya im not really sure how to use these apps. I tried the CPU-Z and now im trying the msi afterburner and I have no experience with this
  12. okay, so I clicked stress CPU in CPU-Z and it was a steady 5340
  13. I haven't overclocked or anything so that CPU is from the box, to the MOBO, and started it up. I just don't understand how streamers and such are getting 144 + frames then, because I thought this was a pretty good card. How can I check the clock speeds
