Default New Setup on 4K 55” Tv

So I finally was able to build a decent PC to support DCS with a 1080ti card, 32meg ram, i7 8700.
I hooked it up to my new 4K tv and finally was able to navigate to find how to send high resolution to the tv and was able to play around for the first time on DCS with just a keyboard and mouse and it looked great.
The video card got very hot running the high res feed so a couple questions:
- I plan on getting VR google soon, should I keep the “VR” settings stock in DCS for best res and performance?
- If and when I use the 4K tv for DCS I do notice the GPU getting very hot..is this ok?
- If I dont choose to run 4K, what is a decent res to run with some good settings?

I have the Warthog throttle and some peddals on order.

Any other suggestions welcome .

Do you know what temp your 1080 Ti is running at?
I run 4K on the same card and it doesn’t get too hot.
The Nvidia cards can get up to about 80c which is normal, my Titan X got that hot but the 1080 Ti does not

My 2080ti stays at 76°(+50MHz +10% power OC) in VR with high to max settings, stays at 45 fps. Lots of fan blowing air out on top and back of case.

My main monitor is crappy 27” 1080p, no need for 4k when in VR.

Also don’t see difference on ingame resolution when in VR, so I keep it at 1080p

I used to run 2x Titan X cards in SLI
They would both be at +80C running 4K on really demanding games. Blowing a lot of hot air all over the room. Compared to that the 1080Ti is cool

I believe the GPU temp was about 60c and I couldn’t even touch the top heat plate on the GPU.
I have 3 140 fans on the top and one 120 fan at the rear and 3 120 at the front drawing in new air over my AIO radiator.
I’m new to PC’s..esp higher end ones and I’m not sure of running it at 60-70c continuously is ok ??

I had wondered the same thing myself as 60-70 is actually a medium well steak, but they’re made to operate at that temp.

Gotcha...I just played (with keyboard for now..waiting for throttle and stick) and it ran max temp 60c at a 4K high settings for about 1 hour...stayed at that temp ..

Wasn’t sure how hot they should get...thanks

For 4k.. 1080ti

run flat shadows for both "shadows" and "terrain object shadows"

high everything else
MSAA=Off
DepthOfField=Off

Lens Effects=Optional
Motion Blur=Off
SSAA=Off

Max out all sliders
AF=16x
Cockpit Global Illum=Optional
VSYNC=ON--- either in game or via Nvidia CP-- set to 60fps refresh.


Provided you have adequate airflow, your GPU will never go above 60c and your frames will never drop below 60fps. GPU load will average around 70-75%...
