Flight simulators and RTS games with very high unit limits will all tax the cpu heavily. I don't know if you'll find a single game that rises above all else, but the previous statement should give you what you're looking for.

Flight Simulator X is probably the big one. Supreme Commander is another. Stuff that hass a mass of multiple calculations to perform at the same time.

Counterstrike with a ton of bots running locally? Garry's Mod?

Source games do use the CPU a fair amount.

Alright thanks, I don't have any flight simulators at the moment, but I do have Shogun II which I can max out anyway. The Reason I'm asking is because newer games like Rage look like they takes a lot of processing power and aside from my plans to upgrade to a new gpu I was thinking of possibly upgrading my cpu as well.

Dwarf fortress taxes the cpu a lot, mostly because its single core and poorly optimized, but once a fortress gets big enough your cpu cries
