Finally got my pre-built. Now what?

So my redux prebuilt finally showed up, what now? 

 

I7 10700k and a 3080. 

 

What programs should I use and changes to make after setup to best utilize my hardware. 

the i7 has an aio but unfortunately the 3080 is only stock air cooler. (For now)

MSI Afterburner if you want to tune GPU clocks, beyond that I say don't load it up with too much. For monitoring though I use GPU-Z and HWINFO64.

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really.

This. 

 

OC the CPU, should do 5GHz+.  MSI afterburner for the 3080.

 

I wouldn't put your $1500 GPU on water just yet.   Leave it alone and enjoy.

It won't be too soon, but I do plan on throwing in a custom loop down the road. Probably be awhile though. Really depends how the stock cooler works and if I end up changing anything hardware related.

Is the 10700k going to bottle neck the 3080? I have a ryzen 9 5900 laptop with a 3070, felt the i7 was a bit under the 3080, or is the 5900 a bit overkill?
