    Some games keep dropping in FPS, switching between my average 60 to 30 and back. This mainly happens in The Forest but also happens in Skyrim, Far Cry 3, etc. and it makes it incredibly annoying to play.

    I've been watching monitors and during those periods, my CPU utilization is low. Why is that? Is something wrong with my CPU usage?

    Thanks for any feedback, I appreciate it.

    bad code is bad. In ideal world you'll get max utilization of both gpu and cpu. but reality is a bit different.

    ah, if it's 60 to 30 then yeah, turn off Vsync OP and you're good. or try different vsync methods (driver) and try triple buffering. If all fails, just run with Vsync off.

    Definitely sounds like a vsync issue. Turn it off and see what happens.
