[SOLVED] Is this load % normal?

So I recently bought a RTX 2080 ti and i9 9900k overclocked to 5ghz. With that, I have a 165 hz monitor and 1000 watt psu.

While playing taxing games, the framerate is nothing to complain about, however I notice my load % maxes out at 97-98%, never fully reaching 100% ever.

While obviously 2-3% shouldn't be something to complain about, I'm just wondering why it never is at full load even if my framerate is well under 165.

What are you using to capture than info? MSIAfterburner has (had?) a bug that maxed your usage out at 99% rather than 100%.

I would say, provided your CPU is not pegged to 100% (and I doubt it is), then 97-98% is likely a misread & you're actually maxing out the card.

Ah, that makes some sense. I've been using the CAM software/MSIAfterburner and both are at 97-98% which seemed odd to me.
