It seems like I am getting CPU bottlenecked, which is absolutely ridicolus because I have a 3570k overclocked to 4.6 GHz. I can play any AAA title including Doom, BF4, you name it at 1080p, all max settings, and never dip below 60 FPS even in heavy battles. But in Planetside 2 (which is far older and has worse graphics than modern AAA titles), the CPU load is so high that the load on my GPU hovers around 30%. What gives????

I'm running 1080p resolution on all max settings, which my computer should be more than capable of handling considering it can run far more advanced games on all max settings with a constant 60 FPS.
