Just for more info, I have a friend with the EXACT same rig, but his Titan runs Darkfall great.

Turn HT off and overclock the CPU, it could be that the game only uses 2 threads instead of all four hence why you're getting ~50% usage. Could be a lot of things, try re-installing your drivers if you haven't already and try repairing the game (if it's steam/Origin etc) or try copying your friends game files and see if that works.

If you have a mate with the exact same rig just see if you can find out what GPU drivers he is rolling, try those. Otherwise a format may be due thumb.gif

It doesn't create enough threads to fully load a 4-core CPU. Probably creates 2 threads, hence 50% load.

It's most likely as other have said - a poorly optimized game. But if not ...

Monitor your CPU temps with something like Realtemp ( http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/ ) and see if any of your cores is overheating (thermal limit for Sandy bridge is 98C).
Perhaps your cpu cooler got loose or something is playing up.

You can also use HWinfo64 (http://www.hwinfo.com/download64.html) to monitor your system globally and see if anything is abnormal (look for cpu thottling or any high temperatures).
Another reason for throttling could be an overheating motherboard - I've seen this happen and it's hard to detect as most mobos do not have VRM temperature monitoring. The motherboard was throttling the CPU to avoid damage to its VRMs.

And then of course, HDD going bad. Check its SMART status for problems.

1. Un-Install current driver set with uninstall utility.
2. Test latest Beta version of drivers + Official Release (uninstalling between each test)
3. Drop your resolution down to like 720 and see if that makes any difference.
4. enable vsync ingame.


also your not alone check out this thread. this is a known issue with the game that apparently has no fix. https://forums.darkfallonline.com/showthread.php?370216-Best-graphics-settings-for-highest-frame-rate


since its an older game its not likely to get updates or driver fixes.

atleast you can rest now knowing the issue and that its not your computer.
