  1. What games do you play? more and more games starting to use 100% of an i5 these days.
  2. I think the days of recommending i5 cpu's for any type of gaming is ending, but out of curiosity what games in particular? i5 is still good for "most" so you're probably playing newer cpu intensive titles
  3. That is not a problem, it's perfect, means more and more games are starting to use more and more CPU. Games like BF ONE may even utilize an i7 too 100%.

    I can attest that this is nonsense. My 6700K barely gets to 60% usage with BF1
  5. Yeah, that came out wrong, I meant to say it can utilize all cores.

    It's not a constant 100% though is it? Are there any fps drops associated with it? I have the same Cpu and experience the same thing in newer games like BF1, The division and Watch Dogs 2. I find on average usage is about 70-80% but have frequent spikes to 90-100%. Is that what you experience? If your not getting severe frame drops I don't think you have anything to worry about. I'ts true, games are slowing beginning to utilize more Cpu threads (i7) but for now the 4690k is still a strong Cpu.

    Have a look at the Ultimate Bottlenecking thread and you'll see the that the 4690k is a minor bottleneck with the GTX 1070.
