I dont tihnk this is possible based from everything I've read about this but lately I havn't been getting full load from my gpu.
im running i5 3570k with msi radeon 7950, cx600 watt corsair, 8gb corsair venegence

It started when I was messing around with OCing my gpu a bit, but i didn't touch any voltage or anything.

suggestions??

What clock is the 3570k at? And what games are you playing?

It will bottleneck is some games but theres nothing you can do about it. It's as fast as it gets for a gaming CPU.

4.2Ghz is pretty easy to attain, try to achieve that.

I highly doubt it's bottlenecking. The only time mine started to was when i added a second 7950. But before that i wasn't even touching the maxing of my cpu.

Bf3 just does that.
I have both of my 7950 averaging about 80% usage.

alright cool guys thank you for the quick advise.
During X-Mark in Kombuster At some parts my gpu usage touches 30% but then it's most 66% then it jumps to 99%...anything out of the ordinary?

I am a bit confused. Kombuster should keep it at 99%

If you start up something like Skyrim or BF3, you can be near guaranteed to get a CPU bottleneck regardless of the setup.
