Will 980 ti sli bottlneck a 4770?

Hi everyone I ordered a gtx 980 ti sc about 2 months ago and I just recently ordered another. so anyway I was wondering if my cpu would "bottleneck" the 2 gpus in sli.
My system specs:
CPU- i7 4770
RAM- 16gb corsair vengeance 1600mhz
MOBO- gigabyte Z87X-D3H
SSD- 256gb ssd
HDD- 1.5 tb and 1 tb wd black and blue
PSU- evga 1300 watt g2 supernova
So I am running 3 1920x1080 23 inch asus monitors at 60Hz . I have heard that the 980 ti sli can bottleneck a i7 5820k. I am looking to play most games at ultra to high setings. Also I am not ocerclocking anything my cpu however does have the boost clock up to 3.9 Ghz which is usually at 3.4. And my gpus are the superclocked refference edition from evga. Which I think has a +100 on the core so will these two cards bottleneck a i7 4770?

All answers are greatly apreciated.

  1. Definitely not. That CPU is a great pair with those GPUs.
  2. Yeah, any processor will bottleneck 980ti in sli. I wouldn't worry to much about it as it won't be all that bad and you should get most of the performance out of the 2 cards.

    If you are playing at 4K then no, but any lower resolution would be more CPU limited.. but you not going to be losing many frames at all compared to any higher chips currently availible.
