Hi, sorry if this is in the wrong area. My CPU is a stock AMD Phenom II X6 1045t clocked at 2.7GHz, I also have an MSI Radeon HD 7870 GHz edition card, also at stock speeds and my RAM is 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance. When trying to play games such as Battlefield 4, I get high fps of 60-90, but very low drops down to 30 or 40 frequently even on low settings. I was wondering if my CPU is bottlenecking my GPU, and if so could I overclock the CPU to fix this problem, or will I be forced to buy a new CPU?
After running Prime95 I got CPU Temps as high as 63 degrees celsius and usage of 100% all throughout the tests. In MSI Kombustor everything seemed fine as my GPU was pulling 90 FPS on average with a temperature of around 50 degrees and a usage of 99% throughout the stress test.
