better ram or better cpu ?

So my 3080 is running great i love it, 

i got the 3080 vision not interested in overclocking it its a beast as it is. More to the point i dont even know if i can over clock it much either way 

 

but anyway im noticing a tiny tiny bit of hitching in games, and maybe a ever so slightly underwhelming in RTX games mostly it runs perfect but if i look into the center of the map on miami in COD CW  

it will drop down to sub 60 which is fine i guess but im wondering if there are additions i can make to my machine right now that i can order tomorrow and get more out the 3080 

 

so im running a i7 8700k but the gods have blessed me with a really good chip running up to 5.6ghz (no really i checked today whilst playing wow and it was running at 5.6. this is via system AI OC (ROG z390-e) 

and ive got 32gb of ddr4 corsair vengeance 3000 

 

so what im thinking is is the oc too high and that is what is causing it even though its stable in general is it actually not that stable even though im not getting game crashes etc etc 

or is the ram not quite up to speed for the rest of the system 

 

thanks in advance

well since you got a intel motherboard, and since i don't know your budget, I can could possibly recommend intel

I'd suspect the AI overclocking is causing problems. The 8700K is still a very strong CPU, but that 5.6 GHz number is almost certainly an error of some kind-- the highest overclock to be achieved on HWBOT Cinebench R15 (a fairly light benchmark) on ambient cooling was only 5.5 GHz. I'd try turning that off, since that kind of thing tends to cause more problems than it solves by pumping the CPU with voltage.

its the auto OC doing something wrong. turn it off and OC it yourself

yeah my eyes nearly poped out my head when i saw that, 

and i pretty much thought that cant be right, but yeah nice 

 

do you think some 4000 ram would also help ?
