I7 950 and high idle cpu usage Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Last response: September 19, 2010 1:03 AM in CPUs Share dynastyss September 18, 2010 7:57:07 PM I just installed my new rig of an i7 950, asus sabertooth, gtx 460, g skill 1600 ram, 64gb ssd, etc. On boot up and idle my cpu usage ala task manager is low 20's all the time. That seems very high to me. I would figure it would be 0-1%. Something wrong with my setup? Thanks.
