hello all,

for some reason when im encoding my 3930k will not work at full speed on a 2 pass encode with hcenc on the second pass i should get 100% load but mine is is only hitting 20% at best??

is there any known problems about the 3930k not being fully used properly on windows 7 .... any help would be great ... thank you

Not 100% on this but are you running an OC on this, the VRM could be hitting the thermal throttle or you may not have enough RAM.

Could be inefficiencies in the encoder too, not being able to hit 100% CPU utilization on all cores. Another consideration is that the source and output storage drive might not be fast enough to read/write data at a rate to keep the CPU 100% busy. For example, my 3930K can encode a 50GB Blu-ray file from a hard drive faster than from the Blu-ray reader because the optical drive can't read at 130 MByte/sec, but the HDD can.
