HELLO PEOPLE oops srry caps lol

i bought a:
Aorus Master Z490
i7 10900k
64gig CORSAIR 3200 mem
3 SAMSUNG 970 plus 1TB m.2 Drives
AORUS XTREME 2080
LIAN LI GALLAHAD 360 AIO
100W GOLD+ PSU
THERMAL TAKE P3

THE CPU IS STABLE AT 5.2Ghz ive never pushed it further even though it has never crashed once - Should i or is this pretty decent and just leave it?
THE MEMORY STABE AT 3.7ghz ive never pushed it further even though no crashes- Should i or is this pretty decent and just leave it?
i havent created a RAID 0 out of the 3 m.2's - Would this be worth Doing for Online gaming? as the drives are pretty fast already - is it worth me RAID'ing them?

===

Now the major thing i want to ask you lot if its cool -- The 2080 is supposed to be an extreme but it barely overclocks - honestly its pitiful -

Could this be anything to do with the standard Riser cable that came with the p3 as ive heard they had to ship out replacements when 1st launched etc and i see many shielded gaming ones for sale on sites? Are there and interference tests i could run ?

Or is it most likely the AORUS software that i really dont like the feel of - Do i have to use it? can i just delete it and use AFTERBURNER or precision like normal ?

thanks you lot for any help - also any tips ya got for me to try - ill post the results etc and a big thanks

Luke

Try installing the GPU directly to the motherboard and see if that changes the card's ability to overclock. Sometimes you just get a dud *stares at MSI Gaming Trio 3080*

What brand PSU do you have? Tho, even a cheap no name 1000w PSU should be able to supply adequate power.

RAID? I doubt you will see enough of a performance boost to make the complication worth it.

1. I'd leave it.
2. I'd leave it.
3. RAID0 (any raid) for gaming us useless for FPS increases.
4. Elaborate on 'barely overclocks'. What did you get out of it?? If you suspect it's the riser cable, try without it and see...its possible!
4a. You can use MSI AB, yes... though I doubt that makes a difference in overclocking.
