So recently my CPU(the one in the title) which has been in my system for 5years has become very very bad since normally it would be able to run CS:GO at around med-high settings whilst having multiple youtube tabs open watching videos but its almost like after i got my 2nd monitor that the CPU has been wat underperforming. I have tried to test it without the other monitor but it still is way underperforming. Also when i am watching a youtube video it uses around 60-80% and lags a little now and then but about a week ago it wasn'øt lagging at all it was playing youtube perfectly.

My specs:
MSI Z87-G45 GAMING (MS-7821)
Intel Core i5-4690K
Nvidia GTX 970
Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2TB
Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600 C9 2x4GB

My userbench benchmark:

P.S. everything in my PC was bought and installed in 2015.
