My OBS CPU usage stays around 10% or below?


New Member
I have a second PC for streaming and I am not sure if my CPU is doing the best it can when I've been testing. I've noticed people on other forums get a higher number on the CPU usage, why can't I? Is this bad for me? The output (on Twitch) seems to be laggy and somewhat blurry as well. Anybody able to help me?

Some of my streaming PC specs:
CPU: intel i7-10700
GPU: Nvidia GT 710
RAM: 16 GB (DDR4-2666)

You can lower the x264 preset to faster or fast. You dropped a few frames so you may want to enable Dynamic Bitrate in the Advanced Settings.
