Skyrim CPU usage very low... Tags: PC gaming CPUs Task Manager Skyrim Video Games Last response: December 10, 2011 5:25 AM in Video Games Share krescent December 9, 2011 7:28:51 PM Hello, task manager is only showing <20% cpu usage on average when i run skyrim --- high everything ultra decals, fxaa, 12 distance fades, 4xaa/12xaf my i930 is OC'd to 3.99ghz stable. 6gb ram 1gb 5850 slightly OC'd +45mhz core and +125mhz mem running skyrim on an SSD.. vsync off, fps limited with enbseries mod i use the 4GB mod and simple borderless window (supposedly compatible) 1920x1080 i have tried using task mgr to set priority to high, doesn't make much difference. I want it to AT LEAST run at 40%, but i'm not even touching that... ultra shadows do nothing but make the game unplayably stuttery.

That will effect the percentage of usage your system will show. Try turning down visual settings. If your CPU usage goes up, that would mean your 5850 is holding you back.
