I recently received my RTX 3080 graphics card and compared to my old 2070 Super it has really raised my CPU temps, being that my 8700 is the non-k variant I didn't think it would be a problem but I'm hitting 80c+ in the game 'Control' for example, GPU seems to max at around 70c which I think is ok, you guys think it's worth sticking something like a Noctua NH-D15 on my chip?, you think it would help?

I currently have my system housed in a Fractal Design Define R5 with stock fans @ full speed, two in, one out.
