I'm playing Battlefield 3 and I'm trying to get a higher performance. I overclocked my GPU which works fine but my CPU causes a bottleneck on large maps and I get 40-45 fps. On small maps though, i get 55-60. My CPU is working on %70 while in-game. Is that a good percent? The built-in performance graph of BF3 tells me my CPU causes the bottleneck. What can i do to fix it?
Here is my system:
AMD Phenom 2 x6 1100T -B.E 3.3 Ghz Powercolor HD 6870 1 GB (Overclocked at 920Mhz) 8 GB DDR3 RAM
Thanks in advance

OC your CPU by rasing your multiplier. Don't touch the FSB. Check out the OC guide for AMD BE CPUs. The principal is the same on all BEs, so don't worry about the specific CPU used in the guide.
