Weird CPU behavior in Cities skylines (lagging)

Belman333

Hello

lately my computer have been acting upp when I play cities skylines. It started out just happening some times but now i cant even play a minute before it happens...

The best I can describe the problem is that the cpu load drops and the whole computer becomes laggy (1-2 fps), some times it fixes itself just from ctrl +alt+ delete and start task manager but not lately. It is this laggy until i close the game. I have had it happen in other games too but not as often.

I have 2 screenshots of task manager, one when the game works properly (about 40% cpu usages on the game) and one when the computer is lagging (4% cpu on game)... the ram usage is high but not maxed and is about the same when it is working and lagging. And the GPU stays att 100%.

Do anyone have any idea? Am I out of ram? 

 

Computer specs:

i5 4690k no oc

16gb ddr3 ram

msi gtx970 no oc (latest driver)

Gigabyte z97x gaming 3 motherboard with f5 bios

I do not remember with brand psu but it is some name brand and 500w 80+bronze at least.

win 10 64bit
