Drop FPS/ Huge CPU Usage after installing new CPU Cooler!!

Hello,

Yesterday I bought liquid cooler 240mm, I installed well, I did not get any issue! CPU Temperature was 27C to 55C (Gaming and non-gaming).

However I start to loose 20-35 FPS in games. I was playing Battlefield 1 with 110-120 fps, and now 60-90 fps! Other games too!

Also CPU usage got to 90%!!!! But temperature seems fine! Never passed 55C!

Try restarting you PC, make sure you are playing at the same resolution and game settings as before (maybe there's a chance that it was on auto, then changed to something new).

I haven't heard of FPS drops that drastic from the updates. Most people are reporting MAYBE 5 FPS difference. This seems too extreme for the updates to have done it.

Yeah I agree, I think something else is going wrong.

Did any thermal paste go over the edge of the CPU?
