I5 6600k 100% usage bottleneck?

SpeederT12

Guess who's back,

This is my second related post, only a new one because the old one is, well, old. So, system config is in my signature, but the essentials are 6600k and a gtx 1070, both oc'd stable (4.4ghz for the former, annd the latter at ~2070mhz and 9ghz effective memory clock). I am stuttering in games, namely battlefield 1, gta v and fortnite. I know that bf1 and gta are very demanding cpu wise, but Fortnite can be ran on a bloody potato, so I'm worried. I'm running a 1080p 60hz monitor and fortnite maxed out is stuttering, with the stutters perfectly correlating with 100% spikes in cpu usage, seen in task manager. Battlefield 1 was hammering the cpu at a constant 100%, but it is known to that to this cpu, never the less it also had some stutters (though turning on vsync almost completely eliminates them and makes the game pretty smooth. Vsync off shows 80-120ish fps maxed out, but still stutters (i'm quite sensitive to screen tearing, so it may be that I'm perceiving it as stuttering), GTA V is unplayable without v sync and has occasional stutters, sometimes more sometimes less (though far more than my friend with a gtx 1060 and a 7700t, both playing on the same FiveM server). I clean installed windows on my ssd about a month ago, leaving only my storage hdd unwiped. Oh, ram usage is also at 6-7gb out of 8gb filled up, but I doubt that's the problem (though maybe 8 is also not enough). What gives? Tonight I'm also going to try out Destiny 2. Is it time for an upgrade? I mean, it's been only 2 years since I built this guy but hell, if I need to upgrade i would consider it. What do you guys think? Is it hardware or software related?

Cheers.

Hardware problem.  Upgrade to an r5 and get another 8gb of ram imo for like a $400 upgrade

I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

 

Try using the PSU Tier List!

I mean... if you're playing Fortnite at 150+ fps on a 60hz monitor, how is that surprising that you're getting screen stuttering/tearing?

Is there stuttering with vsync on? Could try more ram as running out of that certainly wont help.

Not talking about tearing, but stuttering when cpu peaks at 100%, even when capped at 60

It could be software related, I have no idea how healthy your OS is... If you don't have a lot of bloatware sucking resources and so on.

Hm, I don't know, I'm going to try a few games out with fast sync enabled. If I go the upgrade route (which I would if I manage to save money ;d), what would you recommend? I'm eyeing the 9th gen I5 or an 8th gen I7, as I'm also getting into editing 4K Mavic Pro footage with Premiere as well as raw photo editing, which needs more cpu power. Haven't seen that many 9th gen benchmarks yet, for some odd reason, is it worth the jump so I have a cpu that'll actually last me longer than two years?

Update: Lowering fortnite's fps target to 60 makes a 50-60% cpu usage drop. I know this is normal, but doesn't that mean that the 6600k is not capable of running even fn at 100+ fps?
