    When playing BF1 my cpu is often maxed at 100% on all cores and the game hangs for a few seconds. I tried altering graphics settings, increased my ram to 16gb, in fact all the 'fixes' you'll find in any Google search. Some made a difference none stopped it entirely.
    I got fed up so I thought screw this I'll see what happens when I remove the fps limit from monitor refresh rate to 120. The game now plays at 120 fps and occasionally drops to 100! Wtf? I'm only a casual PC gamer, I'll not pretend to know the ins and outs of PC building so can anyone explain why this happened? I was days off buying an i7 7700k just to play this game.

    My specs;
    3570k
    970 msi
    16gb ram
    128 ssd with windows7
    1tb hdd for the games

    BF1 in multiplayer is more cpu dependent than GPU, set the graphics settings as high as they will go till your back around the stable 60fps mark.

    Its also very map dependent, I have saw above 50% usage on my 6700k at 1440p with every setting maxed. but then it drops to 10% on some other maps.
