Hello. Since about 2 months back, my CPU has been spiking at 100% when I play games such as CSGO, Warthunder, World of Tanks, IL-2 etc etc. My specs are as following:

Nvidia GTX 960
Intel i5 6600k
12gb of RAM
Windows 10

My temperatures hover at 35 degrees in idle, and around 50 degrees while playing games. I have performed a thorough cleaning of my PC and I have installed the latest drivers for my CPU. Due to my skills regarding PCs being quite low, I haven't messed around with the BIOS or done anything physical outside of cleaning the PC.

From the research I have done, it seems the latest Windows updates have screwed up Intel CPU performances, although I don't believe the performance would take this big of a hit.

This picture shows the average core usage.
