So i recently upgraded my i5 4670k to and i7 4790k to get better streaming performance.
The i5 did really well but i noticed my pc really slowed down when i had mutiple chrome tabs open aswell as other programs needed for streaming, it pretty much ran at 100% load.
Also i couldnt stream any newer games without horrible lag, my pc would freeze up every 5 seconds or so.
I ran a few benchmarks and got normal scores and temps where fine aswell.
Then i booted up a few games and especially in tf i noticed an fps boost UNTIL i started obs, even when not streaming/recording my fps went from 500 to 150 locally or from 200 to 120 on servers with other people playing.
Weirdly enough my cpu usage is only around 50-60% while i usually had 80-100% with my i5.
Exact same thing with others games, in csgo i immediately noticed how mouse movement felt "laggy".
A friend of mine even tested streaming with the exact same cpu before i bought it and he had no issues whatsoever.
Its upsetting to see my i5 perform better in streaming for no apparent reason, my guess would be because of a bad load distribution?
Anyways would be nice to know if anyone had similar issues like that and maybe even how it can be fixed.
