Someone help me.
Under load, my everything stays relatively fine temperature-wise except my motherboard, which goes up to ~110 °C.
It was free for the most part.
but Its starting to show its age so I am looking to build a new system here soon.
Still plays most new games at decent quality and frame rates so no complaint there.
GPU is the main bottleneck here. Thing struggles with GTA and Fallout. Cant walk into the city with less than 15 FPS
What's that button on your window spaced beside the minimize?
what you guys think?
should i replace my cards? 280x
Why are my timings all wrong? Damn.
Also did I fall for the crossfire meme? I have an extra 280x kicking around that I took out temporarily.

Ok I have a few questions for you in regards to those sli 980's
Do they scale well?
Any major problems you have with them?
Are they OC'd?
What temps do you average?
What's the wattage on your psu?
What cpu do you have and do you get any bottlenecks?
Haven't tried actually, sorry.
Might be because of me overclocking my monitors, but they seem to dislike full DP. In game/practical use - none experienced yet.
Nope, have however fiddled with the fans and they can be loud as hell even below 60%.
I maxed 98c on one when fucking with the fans, but other than that never above 70c during load. (The fans do work quite well.)
Got an RM750, which so far hasn't gotten overloaded yet.
Alright thanks for the info, man.
I'm tempted to sli my 980 and get one of those fancy gsync 144hz 1440p monitors but I'm unsure whether my 650w psu will hold up or if my 4690k will cause bottleneck.
It's actually an i3-4170 but Speccy is mentally disabled due to the fact that it's on Windows.
Bruh! Last time this will be seen, caved in and bought a 4790k and MSI Z97 Gaming 5 which should be here tomorrow.
Multithreaded performance should be the same if not better (due to half the amount of total threads support is likely to be better), single threaded performance should be much better. Then there's SATA III so my SSD can run at full speed, USB 3, the ability to go 3 way Crossfire if I want, less power draw and heat output, and it has M.2 so I may get one of those drives for it at some point. Only downside is I need to switch back to my non-ECC ram so I'll be at 24GB until I can get a fourth 8GB stick, and I won't be able to go any higher than 32GB where as this board supports a shit ton more.
You guys shall be my new brethren.
