i'm not sure this is in the correct sub-forum so forgive me if someone has to move it...
i was given a very nice computer recently and to be honest, i'm kind of nit-picking, but this is irritating me nonetheless. specs are as follows:
Mobo: Asus L1N64-SLI WS
Processors : (2) AMD Athlon 64 FX 72's running at 2800 MHz
RAM: (3) 2GB of PC...something-or-other speed lol sorry cant remember
Video: (2) NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS's
OS: Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
i got it with no HDDs so i formatted 2 drives i had and did a fresh install of 7. that was... less than a week ago. anyway, here's the thing: there is a constant usage of 25% of the processors at all times by the 'System' process. and whats even more confusing is that most of the time processor 1, core 2 is the only core doing it. just pegged at 100% while every other core is more or less idle... BUT some of the time it's evenly divided up between all 4 cores. again, it isn't affecting my computer''s performance. i've yet to call upon all 11.2 GHz from my processors so i can't say i'm terribly upset this is going on, however i'd like to know what's causing it.
