Thanx I think its cpu as well. Its reporting crazy high temps. Thought they were off. I will try reapplying paste and better fan. It claims 150+F!
I think the cpu is fine itself though its not reporting high usage. No core goes above 50% and had 30 usage. I think its temperatures.
ok lets put it this way. a lot of games use 2 cores some use 3 and some use 4. most use 2 though.
if 1 core is maxed your cpu usage would be 100/6 = 16.6%
2 core = 33%
3 cores = 50%
i guarantee that if you overclocked your fps go up.
when you lower resolution you put more stress on the cpu and when you raise the resolution you put more on the gpu. that is why when you lower the resolution you see no difference. now the gpu can put out more fps because the scene is less detailed but the cpu can not keep up.
