Is there a Bottleneck here?

Hello guys. To make it simple, here is my config:

 

i7 3770K @ 4.5/4.5/4.4/4.4

G1 Sniper 3 F8n modded BIOS

ASUS Strix 1070

4x4GB DDR3 1600 9-9-9-24-1T

3x1TB RAID 0 SSHD

Win10 x86_64

Samsung C24FG70 through DP 1.2

 

Now, some games I play like Deceit, PUBG and even DotA 2 (DotA 2 not so much) and sometimes GTA V cannot stand ===STABLE=== FPS, with the more demanding one being PUBG, since it hovers all the way from 60 to 144...

 

Now, I have read that this CPU is enough for this card and even with this OC... But I feel like it is not kicking it anymore... What do you guys say?

Well, high fps requires high frequency, so I would say the CPU with it's older architecture might be the limiting factor. That being said, I also do think the chip should be enough to sufficiently drive a 1070. 

What mods did you do to the BIOS of your motherboard?

A 3770K shouldn't bottleneck a GTX 1070, even at 1080p.

Could it be your storage set up?  Most people these days have full SSDs, not raided SSHDs.  Just looking at the specs it's the only thing outside the norm.

You could open task manager and get a good idea of what's being used up. I bet it's the CPU, it's really old

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
