R5 1600 always at 96-100% usage (help)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

I have a system with an R5 1600 overclocked at 3.9. I stressed the CPU and the overclock was fine ,my temps were below 75 C°. The thing is sitting at idle (like no game just 2 programs opened) I open the task manager and I see the CPU usage at 96% or above that constantly,and the programs that are opened don't oven use the CPU (like 1%).Is it a problem of the overclock?Is it normal?

Also the temps at idle are around 45 C° , which I don't find normal for the cooling I provide

see what's using the CPU


Ryzen 5 3600 stock | 2x16GB C13 3200MHz (AFR) | Radeon VII | ASUS Prime X570-P | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

It's usually windows apps and I see that the task manager uses 35-40% which is insane

It sounds like you have a mining virus, or an update is stuck.

Try clean installing windows.

Which Windows app is using this as they usually don't use that much.

It's a bit difficult to do a clean installation atm , is it possible to remove a mining virus, if yes how?I am currently doing an offline scan and some other scans with Malwarebytes to insure I don't have anything else. Could you guide me from here?

Well it might actually just be windows doing stuff in the background, usually a mining virus will use your GPU.

My gpu is like 1% usage (it's normal for me) the problem is the cpu,also I'm running an insider version of Windows (I'm an insider) so maybe it's a windows problem. If I don't see any changes to the next build I will do a clean installation
