PC not working to full potential ?!?!
Hey guys, I use rivatuner OSD in all my games to monitor temps and and fps meter.
I notice that in most games I play my cpu or gpu are never really maxing out. For example in BF5 they both usually sit at around 80%
Im wondering why this is the case and why neither of them are pushed harder? It happens in most of my games I play, neither of them really max out
r5 1600 3.8ghz watercooled
Fresh install of windows 10
gtx 1080 - 2100mhz watercooled
16gb corsair ddr4 ram running at 2667mhz with cl14 timings, Can also run at 2993mhz at cl16.
Evga 600B PSU
Temps are always good never really exceeding 60c for both cpu and gpu
Things ive tried:
Fresh install of win 10
Deleting all gpu drivers with DDU and re-installing
Power plan set to: High performance
Nividia control panel settings all set for maximum performance etc
I just don't see why the system doesn't push itself more as both are usually around 80% or so, sometimes the gpu runs up to 90-95% on very gpu intensive scenes but usually hangs mid 80%
Im thinking its games optimisation, however it seems to be a reoccurring thing throughout all different games from different developers.
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated
