Default Re: 100% CPU Usage

If you have only 1 game running all your CPU would put all its performance into the game, making it say 100% CPU usage, its normal and its good thing

Precisely. The cpu is running at full power to run the game as fast as it can.. it's been my experience that it will only run at something below 100% if you are capping the framerate or something else (such as a video card for example) is bottlenecking you.

Speaking of AOE3.. I got that free with my vid card, any good?

Default Re: 100% CPU Usage

well when i play a game the cpu usage is most of the time at 5-10%, and that's usually halo. fs9, sometimes at 15%, halo & custom edition at the same time, about 20 or less.
