    I7 920 Question

    THompson

      I have an I7 920 running a very light load.  Most of the time, in Task Manager, I see one core being maxed out but nothing I can find is causing it to do this.  First time this happened I openned the case and cleaned all of the dust out.  This solved the problem for a while.  It has started doing this again with the added feature of showing different cores running high instead of just a single one. I cleaned the system again.  Rebooting the system seems to result in a different core being affected. I even had a "no problem" reboot with 0 cores being affected.  Additional symptoms include a "jumpy" or "stuttering" disply/audio problem.

       

      Any ideas out there?
