More about usage high
  1. What programs are you running, and what % of the CPU are each using? You can check this via the Windows Task Manager's processes tab.
  2. 4 game instances, 4 game bots , and 2 chrome windows at the moment its at 75% usage. if i upgrade the ram will i have less usage?
  3. If thats what you're running then that CPU usage is to be expected.
