    Hwinfo shows all 6 cores working fulltime all the time

    Thanks... you nailed it that time. Power Plan was set to performance. I set it to balanced but for my choices and the meter went to normal. Thanks again for the pointers.

    Hwinfo shows all 6 cores working fulltime all the time

    https://www.screencast.com/t/b6dHFw4vdb       Task Mgr https://www.screencast.com/t/z9sE0rPq8LvI       Sensor/threads So, I guess Hwinfo is just reporting all cores available though they are not in use and not generating heat.  Is this a correct assessment?

    https://www.screencast.com/t/P1fJBc37 Seems like it's on all the time without load.

    Hwinfo shows all 6 cores working fulltime all the time

    I would attach an image if I could see how. All six cores are at full without any conceivable load. It's as if the motherboard is telling the cpu to process on al six and not throttling back and using only two if not needed.

    Hwinfo shows all 6 cores working fulltime all the time

    Is this an issue with Hwiinfo reporting the i7 8700 cpu, a motherboard settings issue or a stuck full on CPU?  Anyone have a clue?  I got the CPU  used and am on the 2nd New MB with same issue (MB settings all in default  as much as I can tell).  Thanks in advance.
