I am having an issue with my cpu usage spiking constantly. It happens any time I am doing any process that takes more than 5-10% of my cpu. The cpu runs normal for about 10 seconds, then has a 5 second spike where every process seems to triple or quadruple its cpu usage. Even though this only puts it up to a total of 40-50% cpu usage most of the times, the sudden jump causes fps drops and lag in games I play.

 

I just got some upgrades to my computer, so here are my current specs:

 

AMD FX-8320 8 Core 4GHz Processor

8 GB Ram

Windows 7 64 - bit

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770

 

This is a fresh install of windows and all drivers. I have disabled C1E, and Cool & Quiet in BIOS which seemed to reduce fps drops and lag somewhat. But it still seems no matter how hard or easy I work the cpu it has the same pattern of spiking to 3-4x the cpu usage every 10 seconds for about 5 seconds.

 

Any ideas?

Also, I have checked cpu temps to make sure heating isnt an issue, and during everything it never exceeds 45* c.
