High idle CPU usage for 2600k - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Have you tried terminating that Java thing? That's using 15% of your CPU right there.

That thing below it IDK what its called but its using 3%. Try terminating them and see if your idle is back to 0.5% or 1%.

Its normal.

If you don't want to listen to years of experience, then go somewhere else!

Honestly, your CPU isn't even idling at 10%, only occasionally spiking which every single CPU has done in the history of mankind.

Your like a hypochondriac haha

If you want to go through the hassle of a clean install, please be my guest, but I doubt it will make a difference.

As for the RAM issue, this is the first I've heard of such...

Please post your system specs in your signature, too. This will help us get a better picture of things.

I would lower the Ram to 1.5v and lower its speed/timings to get it stable

10% of 8 threads is quite a chunk of CPU usage!
And yes SB Ram is supposed to be 1.5v
