I7 10700k
500 gb nvme
2 tb hdd
Z490 a pro
Gtx 1660
Rm 750x

When I try to use x264 to stream OR record obs studio stutters really bad and i get "over loaded cpu" messages. I feel like an 8 core processor should be able to handle just streaming or just recording without using 85 percent of the cpu. Is there anything I can do or am I just stuck having to use h.264?
