Default Re: CPU usage problem

Not entirely sure what you meant right there...

Did you install the Motherboard drivers? Remove the old drivers?

CPU usage wouldn't get spiked due to incompatibility. It could certainly slow things down when you run them, but idling shouldn't cause that.

The CPU should only process commands sent from Windows and running programs. The motherboard isn't going to send thousands of commands to the CPU just because it doesn't like the way it looks. Silly expression, but you get what I'm saying.

While I doubt it's a driver issue, it's not entirely impossible either. I've seen stranger stuff happen.

Did you reinstall Windows after the motherboard upgrade?
