  1. what is your CPU?
  2. intel core i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz

    250gb ssd - 1t hdd - 16gb ram - cx600 psu - using 2 monitors 120hz and 144hz .

    Also after doing some research i found out that cpu might cause the low gpu usage and i noticed my cpu usage is only 20-30% and memory 6-7 gb
  3. That CPU should still be pretty good for gaming. Your low reported CPU usage does not indicate a CPU bottleneck. If you were seeing a CPU bottleneck the CPU usage would be very high, not very low.
  4. Alright but why my gpu only give me 25-30% usage is there any way to fix it or the gpu is faulty?
    I think my setup overall is pretty decent for this gpu i dont get it why the performance is so poor like even worst than my 3 years old gtx670 i rly dont know what to do about it.

    I don't know what the problem is but it's not a CPU bottleneck. I have never used MSI Afterburner because I haven't felt the need to overclock my 970s. The picture you posted seems a bit odd to me though. It doesn't seem like the core voltage should be turned all the way to the minimum like that.

    Like I said, I've never used Afterburner or the other GPU overclocking programs so maybe that is completely normal. I just have a hunch that it is not though. Hopefully someone with more Afterburner experience can chime in.

    Edit: It would have helped your chances of success if you didn't select a best answer before your problem was solved too. Lots of people don't come into threads that are already marked solved because they rightfully assume your problem has been solved.
