2500k @ 5.1 and BF4

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This seems really strange to me but it looks like my 670s are getting bottlenecked by my oc'd 2500k. I'm getting some pretty large gpu usage drops and high cpu usage such as 80-90%. It seems strange because I'm playing on ultra + high settings with 2x msaa at 5960x1080 so I figured the gpus would be the weak link.

I get 50-70fps normally but those gpu usage drops bring me down into the 20s or lower when there are explosions or sometimes when I'm getting hit. My temps seem fine, hottest gpu hit 73 in the last 30 minute game and the hottest cpu core hit 70.

Any insight into this? It just seems a little unusual.

Normal.

BF4 is a raging processor hog. It does that to 4770ks too.

Did you guys notice a difference either way with the new patch?
