Bottleneck? i7 start stuck @100% on 1 thread (WIN 10 up 10586.36)

Hi guys, hope someone can solve this nonsense. :??:
A few weeks ago my PC started stuttering and dropping frames in every game, even at low details. Rebooting the PC the problem is gone.
So I found out that the first core thread was stuck on 100% at startup (just the first) and that's the cause of the fps drop.
Here's the image:

And this is after reboot, when it works fine:


The system temperature is about 35°C


I have read about energy saving C-STATE in bios, it's on "auto". Can that be part of the cause?


I trust in you! :D

    "stuttering and frames drop in every game, even at low details".

    As soon as it power up CPU (1st thread) is used 100% causing that problem: first image first up left square.
    No process requires that permanent 100%, that's the problem.
  3. What is the process in task manager thats using up all of that core?
