Hi I'm play bf4 and other games but I will use bf 4 as an example. On bf 4 I see people getting 100-160 fps on 70-90% load. I only get 60-120 on 40-60% load. This problem is also for other games and I can't seem to find the issue. I removed my previous drivers. Installed the newest one just recently. I tried 3d mark, valley, and heaven benchmarks. These are on 1080p.
On 3dmark I got 21k on graphics score
Heaven I got 100 fps
On Valley I got 113 fps.

My specs.
I have a i7 3770k @ 3.5ghz
32gb of ddr3 1333mhz ram
a asus gtx 980 ti gold edtion
gigabyte motherboard z77x-ud5h.

Any help would be appreciated.

Try updating your video card drivers and using nvidias game optimization utility to pick the perfect setting for bf4. Sometimes the newest driver can provide better support for a specific game.

I have the latest drivers. I also overclocked the cpu to 4.1 ghz stable. I don't want to enable maximum performance because I will have to change it back to optimal mode once I start reading manga or watching videos.

I meant increasing the graphic setting in game.
