    Is it wrong to play with the gpu and the cpu at 100%?


    Hello, I have been playing forza horizon 4 lately on my pc and I have noticed that my cpu and gpu are at 100% at all times, I play with the recommended graphics at 60fps 1080p.

    Specifications:
    CPU: i7 7700
    GPU: 1050 2gb
    I have tried to play at 30fps (which lowers the percentage to 60%) but I can't stand playing a racing game with that many frames, it makes me dizzy.
    In any case, I just want to know if it is harmful to play at 100%, thanks!

    Edit: The temperature of my components is perfectly fine, I don't know if that means that it's okay to play with that percentage of use

    :)

    Hi
    tentrillicom
    ,

    Thank you for coming to the Community forum with your question on CPU and GPU. To answer it as bluntly and as simply as possible, no it is not recommended. It wont do major or permanent damage to your PC though if continuously pushed it will most likely
    give you the Blue Screen of Death and shut you system down. Why I say it wont do permanent damage is when the system is pushed that hard for a long period of time and it shuts down that is your warning- should you choose to continue to do it then you are running
    a risk of damaging parts of your system.

    I strongly do not recommend it - all Forza games do push the PC to it's limits and you will hear t5hat by even the fans kicking in when you start up a game like this.

    The suggestion I have though is research GPU's that suit games like this.

    Thank you and I hope this helps

    I personally wouldn't, have you tried shutting down all non-essential programs running in the background?

    Thank you, so I think I'm going to take the risk until my first blue screen comes out. When that happens I will probably stop playing forza on pc and I will just play it on my xbox, again thanks!

    Xbox One Underrated

    Also with the hacking comment. I believe PS network did get hacked a few times I distinctively remember that being multiple times on the news as well.

    I have to admit I like the home gold sharing thing they will have in place at launch I think not 100% on that like many other thing they announced that will happen. Like the 3.0 external drive storage that's going to be sweet not that I will ever use it
    but cool feature.

    As for the CPU/GPU overclock I don't think it was unless somebody can prove me wrong on it actually bring overcloked. I think the CPU/GPU was under clocked at the beginning and they just boosted the clock speed. The 8 cores on the similar dies are at like
    3.? Can't remember right now. But I'm not 100%

    My PC has requirements to run Gears of war 4 in Medium or high and I'm doing badly

    Have you made sure that no other programs are taxing the CPU/GPU while you are playing the game?
