Recently I built my new rig with a 1080 ti and a 8700k but when I try to oc the 1080 ti past 2000mhz the fps drops from 120 in heaven to 30 and is only fixed if I reboot but i dont think its the silicone lottery because i assume then there would be artifacting and such it also drops to that after about an hour if i have the voltage increased on msi ab but and with voltage and plus 2000mhz it drops instantly and the gpu power goes from 100 to 120 to about 60 i think it could be my psu as i have a raidmax 735 watt but idk any suggestions are appreciated

These days all GPU and CPU will down throttle if the temperature of the chips is reaching the max temp. Heaven is just a benchmark. It's hilarious to me that people care more about the benchmarks than the games that they play. Play games and note the FPS during the game. Is it playable? If not overclock.

I haven't heard Raidmax. I stick with Seasonic because Seasonic has a long history of making quality power supplies. I think Apple picked Seasonic to make power supplies for Apple II. Apple II have lasted a long, long time, so I picked Seasonic because of their long-term usability. I suggest you pick a power supply that matches the caliber of your processor and graphics. I have used S12, M12, and Focus+ series from Seasonic and they are excellent.

Thanks for the reply this weekend I am going to get a corsair psu as I trust them as for the benchmark thing it happens in all games I just used heaven because it is where my issues began I am preety sure that the issue is the psu not being able to output a consistent amount of power to the gpu due to it's low quality although

This weekend I am buying a corsair psu and I will tell you if that fixes my overclocking issues but if not is isn't like I need to oc as my stock 1080 ti is still fine I just want to oc as it is a free 5 to 10 fps
