Hoping you can help me. My CPU has suddenly started spiking at 100% when starting computer games or intermittently while playing. It is noticeable as the game stutters. I have an i5 4690K at stock speeds with an aftermarket cooler. The temperature doesn't go beyond 50C, according to realtemp. I have ran scans using Panda AV, Malwarebytes, Windows defender and CCleaner, to no avail. I look at the CPU load using Task Manager, Resource Monitor and All CPU Meter widget.
I am running Windows 7 and the games I have encountered this on are Blade & Soul and Phantasy Star Online 2.
The spike lasts a few seconds, then cools and might not spike again for a hours. But I notice my streaming software always tells me CPU load is high when starting a game, where it didn't a week ago.
Please advise, thanks
