EVGA Geforce GTX 1080Ti bottle neck?

Hi i'm new here

 

I just got a second hand EVGA geforce gtx 1080ti and put it in my computer in place of a 1050ti iv been having a few problems with it, it runs some games fine but when i try to play VR it runs smooth for about 5-10 mins then my system just resets its self. I've read alot of stuff on the internet saying a Corsair CXM750W is too weak to run a 1080ti and others saying an intel core i5 4690 will bottle neck but iv also herd people say the opposite. Anyone know whats going on? My 1050ti ran some VR game with lag but never made my computer reset. 

 

Any advice would help thank you

Tell that to my CX550M that's powering my 1080ti FTW3. 750w is overkill for a single 1080ti. The CXM series (green label) however is pretty old, it's possible one of the protections are being tripped.

 

Your i5 4690 can be a bottleneck, but it depends on the game itself and what resolution you're running at. Some games will not require a lot of CPU performance and your games will run fine, others will require a lot of CPU power to leverage all the GPU horse power (example, the newest AAA titles like Tomb raider, Assassins Creed, COD and battlefields)

 

For VR, I'm not sure as I don't game on VR and haven't done enough research on it to give recommendations/opinions.

Thanks for the fast reply, ill have to do a bit of digging. Is there a easy way to see if the CPU is a bottleneck ?

Check "recommended" specs for your games. If it lists a CPU with more than four cores, you're likely not getting the level of performance you should with a 1080ti

Update your bios,  run DDU and install latest Nvidia driver. Your hardware specs are fine, unless they are failing. 

Forgive me El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education...

Sounds like psu to me, as has already been said the psu should be plenty good enough but it's old, and the symptoms are kinda what I'd expect from a not 100% functional psu, so if you can, try a newer model.

yeap that's the protection thingies they have, it'll work fine, until you draw too much power, then it's literally an emergency shut off. 

 

So the psu probably isn't defective per say, it just can't provide enough power.
