i have been playing vr for a while now but for some reason, when i play vr (i dont know how long ago this started) it sets the maximum to about 83% and it spikes like a slow heart beat to 150%. my thermals say that it only maxes out at about 70 degrease, what do i do, because it doesnt seem that it would be thermal throttling. and once again, this only happens in virtual reality.

in resource monitor, click on CPU, then look at the percentages on the top, its CPU usage and Maximum Frequency. also it will not give me the maximum of more then 2.5 in certain games, even if i have settings changed to make it so that the game would be using a bit more of the processor then the graphics.

and them max usage in those games is somewhere between 30% to 50%.
it seems like thermal throttling, but i cant tell in this situation.
