    Hi everybody,

    I have obtained an Alienware 17 January 2014 and everything has been going flawlessly. However recently my CPU started to act weird. Percentage Usage goes ridiculously high (60-70%) when playing Skyrim, Far Cry & CS:GO. Yet, when playing League of Legends it is stable (20-30%).

    Help is appreciated~

    Intel Core i7 4900MQ, Nvidia GeForce 780M, Win 8.1, latest BIOS

    Skyrim and FC is heavier than LOL. Its only logical to have more CPU consumption.
