So like a month ago when I used to get good FPS my CPU usage was like 70-80%+ when I was playing fortnite so before like few weeks ago I notoced my fps and game was working like shit and just today I discovered that my CPU usage is maximum using like 30% while playing and also it only uses 2.2GB-s of RAM (I have 8)I checked temps and they are fine i just dont know what to do do you guys have any tips?
 
What has changed since a month ago?

Perhaps you have contracted a virus or malware.
Run malwarebytes free edition.

More likely, windows has pushed out a less than optimal driver update.
Try using system restore to reset your pc back to when all was good.

Also, download and reinstall your graphics driver directly from the gpu web site.

Lastly, how is your cooling?
I expect your cpu idle temperature to be 10-15c. over ambient if your cooler is working.
Overheating a cpu can cause throttling.

What are all the rest of your specs?

I think the CPU is limiting itself due to the fact that the RAMs are getting limited.

You can do 2 things here:
1. Clear CMOS.
2. Find and run: msconfig.exe
Go to the boot tab
Click Advanced Options
Make sure that the Maximum memory checkbox is not checked
