Didn't work  :confused:  I am using SKSE launcher, is it possible that it is not reading the edited ini files and using some preference of it's own? I could also post my ini files to take a look if anything is wrong with them?

make sure you are editing the ini files found in my documents\my games\skyrim not the ones that might be present in the skyrim folder.

 

are you running Steam?

First, what sort of 'problems' are you experiencing? There is no clear indication that the 'problems' you are experiencing are CPU related when you haven't described the problems yet.

Well, short answers will get short replies. Ripple was trying to find out what "problems" you are having with the game; lag, low FPS, freezes, unstable feed, etc. A CPU running at 100% is not a "problem" in itself unless it is causing symptoms in an application.

 

Try running Skyrim in windowed mode with a small sized Taskmgr set to "Always in front" up displaying Processes or Performance. On Processes, you can see which ones are eating CPU time. On Performance, you can see individual core useage. Your friend's i7 has four more threads to work with (twice as many as you have); may be important depending on how well threaded your other running applications/processes are.

 

Not a perfect check, but it might give you an idea of what's happening.
