  1. If your CPU is overheating then yes it's a bottleneck--I would say in and of itself it's probably a bottleneck, but it's also probably throttling. I would reseat your CPU cooler and make sure you clean all the dust out of it and out of the rest of the case.

    in hitman i have 100% usage cpu
    46% gpu usage is that a huge bottleneck?

    You're majorly bottlenecking because you're throttling the CPU. It needs to be cooler to run at it's rated speed.

    Have you fixed it?
    Did you clean case/cooler and reapplied thermal paste?
