My cpu usage for the past 2-3 days suddenly increased for wat they used to be for same tasks. For example when i played Crysis 3 5-6days back, my cpu usage was like 50-70%. But now its around 70-95% for same visual settings same map. Even my idle usage increased to 5-20% from a mere 3-7%. From windows resource monitor i can see most of the apps are taxing my cpu more than wat they used to be 2-3days ago. Even my maximum frequency level has increased quite a bit if i remember correctly. Atm i am running firefox+ u torrent with MSI afrerburner+ HWinfo32 in the background and my max frequency is 55%. When I play crysis it goes to 90-98%. I am not sure, i never noticed max freq stat before but i have a feel it wasnt used to be this high.Wat may be causing this to happen? Any insight and solutions?
I am using i5 700 1st gen for the last 3 years.
I have already checked for virused
Thanks for ur time
