    Hmmmm, tough to say if you can pass the realbench benchmark.

    Verify the integrity of the game cache in Steam.

    Lag spikes could mean your Strix 980 is maxing out in places, or if you're playing multiplayer it could be your ping.

    Lightbulb Thermal and Stress Test

    I had to pull it down to 4400MHz and lower voltage to 1.200 to stabilize. Now when I ran the stress test + everything at these values, i got max 87°C.

    Without stress test, temperature is much lower around 70°C or so. I wanna make it 4500MHz, would it be okay to go with it?
    Asuming that your cooling system works normally. I think your temp is just fine.
    Maybe this guide from tomshardware will help you with testing your system.

    Refering to the link I think that what you're trying to do was Thermal Test (Section-12)
    What version of Prime95 that you used for the Thermal Test?

    I also have the same CPU as you do, and our CPU has AVX ((Advanced Vector Extension) Instruction Sets.
    If you're using Prime95 version later than 26.6, I do hope that you already know that the Prime95 versions later than 26.6 run AVX code
    on the CPU's Floating Point Unit (FPU) which spikes the temperature up.
    You can find it in "Section 11 - Thermal Test Basics" (I do urge you to read the article first if you haven't).

    Actually you can disable the AVX in Prime95 by inserting "CpuSupportsAVX=0" into the "local.txt".
    If you don't know or want to do that you can simply download the Prime95 v26.6 here.

    I'm not an OCers myself, but I always try "validate" my CPU and see what my chip can do especially at early times after finishing my build.
    I disable Ai Overclock Tunner, ASUS Multicore Enhancement.
    Set my VCore and CPU Cache Voltage manually or let the CPU set the volt itself (not using the OC features by Motherboard).
    Because (based on my little experience) many boards nowadays offer "Auto Tuning"/"Smart OC"/"Smart Tuning" which (sometimes) delivers power agressively to the CPU, and mostly cause the chip runs hot and end up in instability.

    I know I'm old school but hey... I'm just an average user who wants his system run normally first then bump the clock a little to see what my PC can do and if I were lucky I start to use each board's OC features one by one and if I've found the OC features didn't work as i hope, I simply turn the particular OC features, set things manually the be a happy camper.

    After making sure the set CPU at desired clock runs normaly with manual settings, usualy i start the thermal test with Prime95 for 3-6 hours (this is my personal preference) and make sure the temperature is in safe range (for me its not exceeding 75c). If I find the temp is not good enough for me then I start improving my cooling system. After that, I start to use the adaptive mode by CPU or what my board offers at the time, and then do the Stress Test using AIDA64 for 24 hours (this is my personal standart).

    I hope this helps you in eliminating (or at leats finding) what's caused your CPU temp problem.

    After your CPU has passed the Thermal Test and Stress Test, then start to do what you usualy do with your computer.
    I never use or had any experience with your board (mine is Maximus VII Hero) but if you still experience crashes maybe you can start with the BIOS setting that i used for my board here under 3201 section.

    Basically its pretty much the same with the settings that i mentioned above only I don't use the OC features that offered by my board (yes i'm not lucky enough with my board) and disabling the Onboard Graphic by setting the Primary Graphic Display to PEG.
    If the setting is not solving then start with suspecting your RAM sticks by reseating, swapping, and borrow from your friends if available.

    Have a nice day!
