Initially I stuck with a EVGA 1060 GTX SSC 6GB because I heard the 2600k would be bottlenecked with a 1070 or 1080, but seeing more YouTube videos where this isn’t the case. So I wanted to see from all you with 2600k systems. What is your rig setup and performance?
CPU OC to:
BF1 graphic settings:
Currently I’m doing:
4.5 GHz (Corsair AIO cooled)
MSI P67A-G43 B3
16 GB 1600mhz Corsair Vengeance
1060 GTX SSC 6GB
70-95 FPS on full ultra, 80-120 low with terrain and another on Ultra.
Is it worth for me to use the EVGA step up program to get a 1070 or 1080 while on 2600k? Do I need to overclock to 4.6-4.8Ghz?
I plan on upgrading to 144hz monitor shortly so I’m looking to get the most or of the current rig. Any other advice on performance boost is helpful. My RAM recommends 1.5v 1600hz, so shouldn’t need to overclock that further even though motherboard can take it.
