Okay, I just built my first PC this past Friday. I went with the i5-3570k for my CPU. Now it has been up and running for a while, I am getting a feel for the system but one thing I can't understand is that my CPU is always be pushed so hard for even the simplest of tasks. Even while I am on the internet, it ends up using like 20% of my CPU. Just now as I was running a Norton full system scan, I was using like 50% of my CPU. Keep in mind I have this thing overclocked to 4.5ghz for turbo boost mode. I just need some help understanding this situation. Fell free to ask questions. Thanks!
