I have a i7-8700k cpu and a 1080ti gpu. However when I run any game with even moderate graphics it seems that the CPU is doing all the work, heats up and my liquid cooling fan and pump go into overdrive and make a ton of noise. Even running something like Conan Exiles, after a few minutes my cpu cooling system is out of control trying to keep the cpu cool. Shouldn't the 1080ti be enough to handle the burden of the graphics without using so much cpu power?
My drivers are all up to date. Maybe a setting somewhere?
