The term "bottleneck" seems to be getting grossly over used IMHO. No matter what you do there will always be one component slower than the rest. If you fix one "bottleneck" you automatically create another. Why is that so hard to understand?

Agreed.

Many people fear CPU bottlenecks, but by buying more powerfull CPU's they automaticly create GPU bottlenecks.
Either way there will be no major bottleneck.Yes there will be some cases where your CPU will limit your FPS but if you're already playing with 120 FPS, 30 FPS more won't make a difference.
Just take a look at this article.Consider your CPU to be faster than a Athlon 645 and slower than a Phenom 970.

Because that CPU is sort of underpowered. A good overclock should help the bottleneck. But its not going to be too severe. Unless you play at a low resolution.

I couldn't agree more. The only people that should be worrying about bottlenecks are using outdated machines with dual core processors. So your CPU isn't as fast as a core i5 or i7. BFD. Its still plenty fast enough to run most software at 1080p. Unless you are willing to spend hundreds on a new PC I would be happy with the setup you have.

since you have a Zosma you can unlock it to a 1600T=1090T. your cpu should than less be an bottleneck and you MoBo can support it! (can get a bit heated there, so try to upgrade you CPU cooler)

Seems that the Post only views the Single Core performance, or isn't?

i am sure it looks at multi threaded performance or some of those other cpus would not have done as well.
