    i5-6600k hits 100% cpu usage while playing games.


      Recently I built a new computer and have a problem with high cpu usage. On games like CSGO (If I run the highest graphic settings) and The Division I get stutter lag, but my FPS doesn't drop. I built this computer for mainly gaming, but I thought it would be able to handle streaming to, but with the i5-6600k running at 100% even without streaming, this isn't possible.
