While playing Battlefield 3 my CPU has been at 100% and causing the game to stutter , while just browsing normally it has been at 50%-70% , I had it over clocked to 4.2GHz but brought it back down to stock ,does anybody have any idea what the problem is?

What the hell are you running in the background such that it's at 50-70% while browsing?
i have a 2550k at 4.4 and while browsing websides it does not go over 20% go to task manager and see what service is taking to much of your cpu
Your 2500k @ 4.2 should kick ass & not be the root cause
Thanks for all the help guys , The problem seems to be just with the multiplayer aspect of battlefield3 , no other games react in such a way. As for the high percentage for browsing these seemed to come from EA's Origin (used to run Battlefield 3 ) so im just going to steer clear of them for the time being
