Q6600 CPU Usage 100%

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How many real world applications must I open to get 100% CPU usage on my Q6600 OC 3.4 Ghz?







As you can see with all those applications open utilizing 3 GB ram I still have some head room! In addition, switching different windows is as smooth as butter. I love my Q6600!

I don't know but I will try soon. That is much more clicking on a single spot that I would like to do especially when the CPU usage is really low.

Yeah it is my case, thanks for the compliment. If only I could get a 120 mm fan on the side but I had to take it out after I put in my Thermalright Ultra-120 - 1 Panaflow Fan. I was about to put two Panaflow Fans on the Ultra-120, one on both sides but it came with only one of the pins. Too lazy to ask for a second one.
