I have an I7-8700k processor with a GTX 1060 6GB. Gaming has been perfect with no issues until the past week where I have been getting slight frequent stutters when in a game. Upon checking my task manager for CPU usage it is showing that any game I launch is using over 60% CPU usage sometimes north of 80%. The only applications running are the game and discord. I have been doing this for months on this settup without problem. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do? I really don't want to just buy a new CPU if it's not needed.
