With a Dell S2716DG Monitor
I've run this rig for about 11 months now and have had no problems so far. However, I started up League of Legends the other day and was only getting about 30-40 fps with major drops every time a lot of particles were on screen. I've tried updating drivers, changing pcie slots. System restore etc. Fresh install of windows. etc.  I found that its not only the case in League as well. I played overwatch today (normally run no problem) and it was only reaching about 50 fps (No vsync/ frame caps.) I know the game is playable at 50 fps. But with my specs I feel I should get highter than that.

I also ran Firewatch on ultra settings and was only getting about 20 or less fps.

I did try to look at resources used when playing and it looks like my CPU was at 100% and GPU was at about 40% (max) Utilization when playing overwatch.
Temperatures looked fine both for cpu and GPU (GPU didnt go over 70c)
Anyone have any other ideas etc? I'm at a loss

Put screenshot from Task manager processes tab when CPU is 100% and sort by CPU usage.

Heya, thanks for the reply, the CPU usage in task manager actually doesn't go up to 100%, However in MSI Afterburner it shows cpu utilization going to 100% for just about every core. I guess thats a better way to explain it! In task manager it doesnt go past 30,40% if it even gets up to that. Hopefully that makes more sense

What processes consume CPU power? You selected "show processes for all users"?
