    Hey guys just recently I've came across a problem while playing different game such as cs:go and LoL among others to where my fps will drop a lot (almost unplayable) but my load on my CPU never goes above 40%. The temp is fine (around 40-50c) and all the cores are running. Oh and my CPU is i7-7700k. plz help.....Also a really weird part that I forgot to mention is that the fps only really drops when I move my mouse.

    What type of GPU do you have?

    The CPU won't be at 100% usage. Especially if the game is using all the cores in it. I use FSX and it only goes up to about 40% and it's only single core threaded.

    Have you tried updating the GPU driver?

    There could be a driver conflict with your keyboard/mouse software. Try uninstalling that software and let Windows manage the keyboard/mouse.
