CPU usage goes up when I OC cards

When I OC the GX2s the CPU usage goes up from 4% to about 50% and its all on 1 core. What is causing this?

Any ideas what is causing this?

EDIT: I just OCed cards. Its not showing an increase in CPU yet. I ended the process for Riva.

I've never had this happen with my GX2. Did you check the processes to see what was using all the %?

Let's blame it on Windows!
