High cpu usage?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

From time to time a service called "antimalware service executable" will run using high cpu usage..... Following that ICUE and corsair. service will also use alot of my cou which causes it to be pinged at 100% and making my pc unusable... I have a 9700k and a gtx 1080. My fans and lighting is controlled through ICUE but I dont understand why it uses such high cpu in those instances.. on idle corsair.service only uses 1% icue is something like 0.5%.

Make sure background apps are disabled.

Go into task manager and disable unnecessary startup applications.

Make sure Windows, Bios, and your chipset drivers are up to date.

Usually doing these will improve CPU usage while idle or just doing basic tasks, if it doesn't improve you may need to do an inplace upgrade or fresh install of Windows.


Main Desktop: CPU - I9-9900k @5ghz | Mobo - Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master | GPU - Asus ROG STRIX 2080ti OC RAM - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 3200mhz | AIO - H100i Pro RGB | PSU - Evga 850 GQ | Case - Fractal Design Meshify C White | Storage - Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVME SSD 512GB / Sabrent Rocket 1TB NVME SSD / Samsung 860 Evo Pro 500GB / Seagate 2TB Firecuda Hybrid Drive |

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

I need ICUE to be running at all times so I cant disable it. Ive already disabled all of the unnecessary things.
