PC Specs:
Mobo:b360m ds3h
CPU: i5 8400
GPU: RTX 2060 6gb
RAM: 16gb DDR4 2400hz
CPU COOLER: H100i PRO
PSU: EVGA 750w
CASE: THERMALTAKE V200
Extra:Be Quiet! silent wings 3
Storage: 2x500gb SSD, 1tb HDD

I just got battlefield 1 to see how good the graphics are, and my CPU is at 100% most of the time (excluding loading screens) but its only 50°C-60°C. Is this normal?
 
Many newer games (BF1, BF5) will absolutely use 100% of your CPU, especially at 1080P resolution with an RTX2060...

BF1 can certainly utilize more than 6 threads, and seemed to scale well up through at least 10-12 threads..

I'd say normal for that game. Any resolution from 1080p up and that's pretty much right.

OK thanks for the help, I actually run it on 1360x768 60fps, since my old monitor (which is a small T.V.) only goes up to that. I also run it on Ultra preset, and usually nothing is running in the backround.

Totally normal for BF games to hammer the cpu. It only becomes a problem if you aren't getting the fps you want, but your cpu should be fine pushing 60fps in BF games. Now if you wanted to maintain 140fps that might be a different story.

Yea, thanks again for explaining this. I always thought my CPU was too bad to run games like this, but now I know that its typically only in BF games. Thanks for the help
