That Strix board is better than my MSI X299 Gaming M-7 ACK. Someone lent me what I need to de-lid this CPU but I'm not sure about doing it.
I screwed up one of my i7-7700Ks de-lidding it. So I'm pretty gunshy about it.
I'm going to have to either do it or not, pretty soon. I've had his de-lid tool too long.
Well... there does seem to be a 10 C gap in between your two Cinebench runs. Was this closed case? If so, you have an obvious airflow issue, the 1070's are more efficient, but the 980ti's dump too much heat in that case that can't leave it proper. Want to verify that (and exclude the different RAM as well), then dial back to 1 1070 and run again. I'll take a small guess and say your scores will be similar but your temps much lower. In that case, improve case airflow before you risk the delid.
As for the low scores, definitely temp related, you're hitting 100C
