Is my CPU bottlenecking or is it game optimization

Hi, I currently have a i5 4460 3.20GHz and a GTX 1070. For some reason when I try to play H1Z1: King of the Kill the CPU is at 90% - 100% and quite often hitting temperatures of around 60°C - 65°C. I also have to run the game in high instead of ultra and really low resolution because my FPS drops below 30 far too often. But, running in low specs doesn't actually make much of a difference to the FPS, it still drops below 30. Other games my CPU runs at 40% maximum in ultra and very stable FPS. Any advice would be great, thank you.

Thanks in advance.

To me that sounds like an issue with the game - that cpu should easily be able to handle almost any game that you throw at it.
