Core i5 100% CPU Usage with 1080P Video?

Well .. as title says i got a problem , i was just fine this morning but about 2 hrs ago i got into this problem.
The thing is that whenever i try to load a video or play a game like Tera Rising which i play often ... my CPU Usage goes to 100%! I took an screen shot while playing the 1080p Video with core temp opened and the temps never went beyond 60 and now i have been runing Prime 95 for about 10 mins and Temps never exceed 71 Degrees so that makes me think that it isnt a bad heatsink installation since my room is usally around 30 -31 ° at idle my machine is at 38- 39.
Its driving me crazy to figure out what could be the problem.
At first i though it was the OC i have on my GPU but that didnt make a change at all the problem was the same .. Now i went from 35FPS in the main City of Tera Rising ( Velika) where tehre are bunch of players and stuff around , to freaking 3 - 5 FPS its unplayable

Heres the Pic:

And my specs:

CPU: Core i5 4670K
Cooler: Corsair H60 - 2013
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87MX-D3H
PSU: Corsair RM650
GPU: R9 270X at 1130 - 1470
RAM: Corsair Vengance PRO 2X4GB
HDD: Seagate 2TB ST2000DM001
CASE: Corsair 350D

As u can see this was recently build and it makes me get sad alittle bit to start having problems so early.
PS: Running Windows 8.1 with the lastest updates

  1. Does this happen with all media players you use?? Also how long as this been happening? if it is new then there might be a process running that should not be..perhaps something you did not see got installed that is doing this, This happened to me a few times when I tried installing freeware or open source software that was not what it said it was and I thought my CPU was having s stroke. Do a virus/malware scan..and uninstall anything that seems out of place and reboot. I have had issues with HIgh CPU usage with VLC when playing certain kind of media...mostly gameplay I recorded with Shadowplay but it only happens with VLC.
  2. I was fine this morning as i said , then i left my desktop downloading files using Jdownloader for about 3 hrs and when i got back it was like this .... Now cant play anything at all and well it happens with all media players not just VLC. i dont have too many programs besides Adobe Suit which i use alot and the Games like BF4,Skyrim, NFS ETC.
  3. Sorry I did not get back to you....Have you fixed this yet?
  4. Nop , well is fine at least you tried to help out , but is sad to see how the majority of the ppl in this forum just answer the easiest questions like " Who is better AMD or Intel" or like "Which CPU should i buy for gaming" And when someone actually need help no one cares . Oh well what can i do about that .... Thanks . I re- mounted the cooler with new thermal but is still same.... I will try to figure out .
  5. No worries mate. I will look it up as I like to try and learn about CPUs anyway. I fit it in where I can as I have things I need to do for school. Also reading your post gave me an excuse to start learning more about AMD CPUs and chipsets. I will get back to you
  6. Well it looks it is fine now ... i went into the BIOS since the last thing i remember that i modified was the timming of the RAMs, i put them in manually but for my surprise i put 8-9-9-24 instead of 9-9-9-24.....
    Is still alittle bit werid since i was able to use the PC like i normally do all the morning even with the wrong timming... but oh well... its been fine now so far.

    Crap sorry I got mixed up I was reading two different posts with the same issue..The other had the same problem but is was an FX6300 with an Asus 970Chipset MB.....But I guess it is ok now, yeah. But I am glad it works now...usually when a CPU is throttling like that it is software related. I was looking up stuff about AMD for a bit...does not matter now i guess
  8. Yep i wa slike " what AMD? xD" but anyways ty for the help i will pick u as solution since one else tried to help me at all, and hopefully i dont have any more porblems in the future related to this. So far its been great. If not i wil have to revive this post xD
  9. Thanks mate...I would have liked to be more helpful but I am glad your CPU is not going into cardiac arrest now.
