2070 Botttleneck Question

If I add a 2070 to my build that has an i5-7600k that I can't overclock will that cause bottlenecking issues or will the CPU be able to keep up with a 2070?

Bottlenecks always exist and is not a yes or no

We need resolution, refresh rate, and intended settings.

How can you not overclock a 7600K?

My guess is that they brought a non Z board for whatever reason.

Yes as it seems from his saved part list, he has a H270 chip-set board. So, no OC.

The 7600K will go as fast as it can for the given application (game engine or whatever), and the 2070 will go as fast as it can rendering the frames sent by the CPU, for the desired graphics quality and monitor resolution. The right way to look at it is, does the CPU go fast enough running the programs I'm interested in? and does the 2070 render fast enough at the quality settings and resolution I want?

Having "too much" CPU or "too much" GPU doesn't slow anything down. The only bad effect is that your wallet might be lighter than it would be from a more appropriate parts selection.

As BetrayedPredator mentioned above.

Bottlenecks always exist in the one way or the other.

OC or not, the i5-7600K is still a native 4 core processor without any additional threads.

Just play some games and if performance is satisfactory, you have nothing to worry about. :)
