Help cpu says its running at 100 :video:

 Share

You have apps or programs running that don't need to be (hard to tell as vid focuses on percentages and never shows what process / task / app is using that percentage), or you have a severe bottleneck between your CPU and GPU. Another possibility is too little RAM for the way the machine is used, but doesn't seem likely as screen shows 26% RAM used. More complete list of specs would help.

OP: My PC cuts off and crashes. Is the 1000W PSU enough?  ME: 1000W is plenty, PSU or system board could be faulty. Get both tested.

OP: I don't think so, both parts were purchased last week.        😒  Why bother asking if you second-guess the advice?

It finally did play, not sure what that was about. However, it doesn't show which tasks are using so much of the CPU, so not much info there to go on. What speed is your RAM (3200, 2666) and is it DDR3 or DDR4?

Note: Chrome and other browsers use video plug-ins that can be quite CPU intensive. And while a 5600X isn't a bad match with a 3070ti, I can see where a misbehaving plug-in could do something like this.

 

First things first. We need clarity on what is using 34% and 24% of your processor that might not be necessary.

 

Shift-PrtScr while on Task Manager will do a screen dump. You can then Ctrl-V (paste) into your post here.

Nvidia container is a streaming service, presumably part of the GeForce Experience package. If you're not streaming, you can kill that, and that is probably a good chunk of your problem. Streaming is very CPU intensive. If you don't need this, there should be a way to disable it. Likely you inadvertently activated it with an unknown hotkey combination. Should be easy enough to get into the software and disable the hotkey for it if you don't have a need for it.

Also, that AntiMalware at 16% usage is sketchy unless you're currently running a scan. I have McAfee, and it never uses that much. I've never seen MalwareBytes use that much either.

OP, here is a little help on disabling what started what I think is your problem. You may still need to turn it off in GeForce Experience. In a nutshell, I believe you've activated Live Broadcast through GeForce Experience and need to turn it off, and it might be prudent to disable the shortcut to prevent a repeat of this if it is not needed.

 

Open GeForce Experience Software. Click the gear icon in the upper right corner. Then click Settings under In-Game Overlay as shown below.

 

From there, click Keyboard Shortcuts.

 

Scroll down to Broadcast Live, and there you can change whatever key combination is set for live streaming to something you're not as likely to unknowingly activate, or better yet, disable the shortcut altogether. Personally, I think whoever came up with the idea for presetting kotkeys for stuff like this deserves a special place in hell.

Further, this is how you manually access status for Live Broadcast, Recording, etc., and turn on / off.

icue, asuscert, and ledkeeper all in one system ? woof.

 

taskmanager at 44%. welp. 

 

i recommend to remove any asus, msi and corsair programs, which are all known to cause issues, even if you dont see them using resources. 

 

which is btw not easy to do, especially with asus, you'll probably have to disable the asus services in taskmanager/services even after "uninstalling" it...

 

here is how taskmanager "should" look like.

yes i have corsair link running ... specifically after it turned out what a huge CPU hog corsair icue is... i can live with the 0.1-1% usage...

 

Also can you post a screenshot of "startup" ?

also note, openRGB isnt even running as i always close it after it loaded the LED profile...

 

I also strongly recommend a full scan with Malwarebytes.

(full specs would be helpful too)

those typically really don't use many resources,  especially if you're not actually streaming/recording.

 

Also what's the "video card information..." thing? ive never seen that on my system.  

 

 

ps: yeah, Nvidia container using 22% (icue 17%) i wonder if OP is actually streaming/recording? but even then the usage is way too high, I suspect all the little 3rd party apps doing their "thing" tbh... 

The direction tells you... the direction
