i7-9700k 100% CPU usage

★★★★★ Novice

My CPU (i7-9700k) is constantly at 100% usage while playing BF5. Thats why my game stutters sometimes and my mouse feels not precise. It would be nice if someone could help me to solve the problem. GPU: RTX 2070 Super RAM: 2x8GB 3200mhz CPU cooler: Corsair h100x

Thats a shame it did not help. Could you please try a Windows cleanboot and post your DXdiag?

The same way you figure out the cpu usage.

Either through windows task manager or a third party software like HWmonitor, HWinfo etc...

 

The point here is to see if your gpu usage is low which is a known problem and causes the cpu to go overboard.

If you have a low gpu usage then google for that. Its hundreds of posts with that problem for Battlefield franchise and lots of things to try.

As I have never experienced this myself I dont have any verified solutions however if you search for "low GPU usage battlefield" or similar you will find lots of threads talking about this issues with many possible solutions. Just skip the threads where people have old cpu's bottlenecking the system since your system is very good.

 

Some things you can try is to mix up which directx version you are using and turn future frame rating on or off. If you are on dx12 now, try to switch FFR on and off and see if it does anything. If not, then switch to DX11 and do the same thing with FFR and see if it changes anything.

If that doesnt work then you need to to some search but some solutions involves making and set a future frame rate limit either in nvidia control panel or in battlefield console. Its the same as the FFR setting but you can control it better in console/nvidia control panel. 

 

Other things is to make sure you have latest windows build, latest bios, latest drivers etc and that you do not have anything cpu intensive running in the background. I know some people have had issues with running shadowplay while playing. But this may end up in a troubleshoot effort for you unfortunately.
