Default Re: 100% CPU Usage

Wow, for real? My old computer has a 1.6ghz P4 and half the ram you have, and it still doesnt even use that much. Its like.. 30s range. Most of the time.

Default Re: 100% CPU Usage

let me refresh myself, 0%! whenever i just start a game my cpu usage doesn't go over 20. i don't think anything i do goes over 20 unless i'm converting a video or ripping a dvd.

*Bump*
Sorry to bring this back up, but it is regarding this question. I ran a monitor on my CPU and played AOE 3 for about 4 hours at 100% CPU usage, and it peaked out at 42 degrees Celcius(not sure if that is spelled correctly) Temp wise is that decent for gaming and it being overclocked by 500MHz?
