I have an i7-5820k and was wondering if lowering the power limit of my 2080ti will help smooth some of the frames or at least decrease the CPU bottleneck I have?
Currently, the CPU is overclocked to 4.5Ghz @ 1.28v running about 77c under load. I've tried disabling hyperthreading, lowering voltages of both CPU and GPU, changing resolution/game fidelity settings, adjusting monitor refresh rates, enabling GSync/vsync options etc.
Can't seem to get stable frames no matter what I do. In every title I play (Fortnite, PUBG, Gears4, even single player titles like Borderlands 1 and 2), frames drop every few seconds to a noticable degree, it's like screen tearing in a sense of both movement/visuals. Any help of the matter would gladly be appreciated or by pointing me in right direction via some already posted articles or tutorials.

Hi there, EdgarIsmael!
Thanks for taking the time to connect with us. I know how annoying frame-rate changes can be, and I'm sorry to hear you're dealing with this!
The i7-5820K is still a great chip, and for gaming there's very few CPUs that are undoubtedly better.
Are you absolutely confident there isn't a different bottleneck in your system causing these issues? After CPU and GPU, the next most common bottleneck would be found in your RAM, then temperatures.
Was this a recent upgrade? If so, were you getting stable frames prior? It's surprising to hear you are unable to get stable frames, even on lower settings.
