Cpu 100% usage bottleneck ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So when I play Cod Modern Warfare my cpu maxes out up to 100% and my gpu is only at about 50% what is a way I can fix this issue if its a upgrade what's a good choice for cpu (LGA1151) or if there is a hot fix that would be great to know. 

 

specs:

gigabyte gaming b8 motherboard 
i5-7500 3.40 ghz
gtx 1070
16gb ddr4 3400
250gb ssd
1tb hdd
windows 10 home 64

The best cpu that you can get without changing your board is the 7700/k and that would be a pretty nice upgrade. 


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

You could upgrade to a 7700(k) as it's simply just your cpu being a quad core that is the issue. However a used 7700 easily still goes for over 100 which it is not worth. That and you are on a dead platform which would leave you stranded when the 7700k isn't enough anymore too (I expect this to come true sooner rather than later with the new consoles coming out in 2 months).

 

I would say save up a bit and get a ryzen 4000 series upgrade when they come out. It's gonna be more but you'll end up with a system that will last you longer and isn't a dead end.

But you still need a new motherboard for that. We are talking about the used market so things like ebay for the 7700k. How much is the 9700k?

You'll need a new board to support coffee lake.

it should be fine since you wont/ can't over clock the 7700/k.

it is, but intel decided to not keep compatibilty. so you need to change the motherboard, or... if you like modding, there's unofficial ways to run 9th gen on z170/270 chipset. but it require bios and cpu modding. not so easy for everyone. but if you're lucky, maybe someone already has modded bios for your motherboard model :)

if i remember, the cpu modding is not too hard, it consist of covering some pin with adhesive tape.

 

but anyway, considering all of this is dead platform, i think you better put that money on more recent hardware...

Same socket but does not work on 100 and 200 series boards. Intel made sure to not allow people to upgrade to it. 299 for a 9700k isn't a great price since it's only a 8core without ht.

Get a Ryzen 4000 once they are out (likely next month) with a new motherboard. Spending money on a 7700k would be burning money they way I see it.
