i5-4460 high cpu usage in every game

Fisrt of all, sorry for my english.

For about two or three months I have been dealing with constant FPS drops in games that used to run just fine.

With monitoring programs, I realized that those FPS drops were happening because my processor reached 100% usage. So, after that, paying more atention to the cpu usage in games, I realized too that the usage was constantly high in just about every game, causing fps drops in games that used to run just fine a few months ago.

Searching in the internet, I read that this problems could be happening because of overheathing, and that's not the case. In the worst case scenario, my temps are aroun 70°. So, i read it could be virus. I formatted my computer and reinstalled the windows, but the issue continues, so that's not the case too.

I Have Windows 10 PRO 64 bits, here, 8GB RAM, GTX 970 and finally the i5-4460 processor.

I'm waiting for you guys' feedback.

Thanks a lot.

Problems with low frames per second are usually related to memory or graphics.

 

I would recommend testing the following components:

 

 

Physical memory: Try testing different memory sticks or one memory at a time.

 

 

Graphics card: for driver updates please check http://www.geforce.com/drivers http://www.geforce.com/drivers

 

 

I would also recommend contact the board maker for additional information.

As I said, Allan, the problem is not the GPU. The GPU runs just fine at 60%, 70% while de CPU is in 100%. The exact same moments that theses frame drops occurs are the moments that the cpu hits its maximum usage. So, no, the problem is not related with my graphic card.

Thanks for the reply, though.

Thank you for the feedback.

 

If you think this is a processor issue, try placing this processor on another board or contact Intel for warranty service at http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/contact-support.html Intel Customer Support
