Am I CPU bound? 290 Crossfire on 2500k
Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z
620Watt Antec High Current Gaming PSU
Added the 2nd 290 and heard the PSU making a very odd clicking noise when running furmark, and the system just shutdown.
I have a Seasonic 1050 Platinum on order.
I can get about 4.4GHz outta my 2500k but is that limiting me by alot? My mobo/cpu only supports x8-x8 PCI-E 2.0, but I could get a 3770 and it would be x8-x8 PCI-E 3.0, but it doesn't seem worth it, as a 6600k would be a couple hundred more.
Is the cpu truely limiting me by alot?
