Just started having some weird cpu issues today. So i recently started having my CPU shoot up to 100% usage while playing today no matter what i'm doing in game. All the while my GPU usage is 20-40%. I have not had a single issue with this game until now, and it only started today. While my cpu usage is at 100% my cpu temp starts shooting through the roof and caps at 80*C. I have not change any video options and have always run the game on High. I have also tried various other games like KF2 and BL pre-sequel and my cpu goes no where near 100%. Any thoughts? I have ordered thermal paste in the event that it comes down to me cleaning the old crap off and applying a new coating. I know this is an alpha game (not fully optimized) and this gamed seemed more cpu intensive than gpu intensive from the moment i started playing it. I have also noticed a TON of skipping/teleporting around while i am running (only in tavern with at least one other person), as well as my FPS not staying consistent even with my gpu not even hitting 50% usage. Also when hitting 100% cpu usage my fps obviously shoots down to to 15-20s, but still does not take advantage of my gpu. Since this has become an issue i have not entered a game and have stayed in tavern. EDIT: I decided i would stay in game even after my CPU hits 100%, turns out it stays at 100% for 5-30 seconds after a load screen and 15-30 seconds when alt tabbing. I also decided to play a game, gpu hits 55% sometimes but goes no higher while cpu fluctuates from 50-60% usage. This game use to run much smoother. Specs: i5-2500k (not oced ) 660ti gpu (not oced) 16 gb ram Win 7 64-bit pro.
