I mean, you could try the "High Performance" power plan, but the CPU typically goes to max clocks in-game with "Balanced" (what I have mine set to) anyway.GFresha wrote:Going to try some of your settings and give it a go. I mean mostly its the same except I am using all low settings also does "processor power management" matter? From the power options in windows, I currently have it at 5% and max at 100% so that its not 24/7 overclocked. Also should I change my power plan to ultimate?/ high power? Currently set on balanced.
My 8700k isn't even overclocked currently (reaches 4.4 GHz auto turbo-boost in-game). My GPU is factory OCed.
Since I'm not seeing spikes on my system in this game like you are on yours (I just game, no browser windows open, no overlays, no multi-tasking, minimal active background processes), I'm guessing the difference between our performance is down to background processes/multi-tasking, perhaps?
Forgot to ask, you have Fortnite set to exclusive fullscreen, right, not borderless? Also are you a single or multi-monitor user? Hyper Threading enabled/disabled? (mine is enabled)
Beyond that, you could attempt to unpark your cores:
Anyway, as I've already mentioned, what you're seeing could be caused by a variety of factors, and it can be hard to pin down which one of those is causing it on your specific system configuration.
