How? I recently replaced my 2 months old MSI Z170A M5 mobo because it died. So i got a new one about 1 week ago.

Mobos have usually old bios when you buy one so if you haven't manually updated BIOS then it could help. Also have you oveclocked your CPU because sometimes ypu get unstability when overclocked amd have old bios.


I'm Linus too. (:

No overlock on the cpu.

Try changing the post FX value in the settings from ultra to very high or if you have very high turn it to ultra. That setting sometimes causes random low fps and maybe low gpu usage.

God, it annoys me how shit WoW runs in raids. 

yeah tell me about it. esp when you're tanking on kazzak and face the rest of the raid group. my fps drop to 55-60 with all the shit flying in my direction. my cpu usage is around 45-60% in WoW depending on where i am.

CPU usage is around 80-99% when GPU is around 70-80. Is it bottlenecking? I also have the 6600k 

Yes Bottleneck. You can try overclocking your CPU. 

 

1080p + high fps is one of the situations that'll typucally CPU bottleneck games.

 

You can try maxxing out the advanced setttings if you haven't already or increasing the resolution to 1440p+ to remove the cpu bottleneck. Less FPS = less CPU bottleneck.

Any reason why you haven't OC? With a nzxt x61 you're basically golden to OC with controlled madness. I have a h110i gtx at the moment and run at 4.6ghz @ 1.38v and bclk at 100.3 (insignificant bump lol). You'd get more bang for your buck esp since the k is meant to be OCed

Already have advanced maxed, msaa x4 and so on. And i use alternative vsync so it locks to 60 fps. But yesterday when i changed msaa to x4 and some other settings the gpu usage got up to 90-99 and cpu to around 70-85.
