I've noticed before that my cpu over volts between 1.79/1.81. Now that I have MBM5 I can see that my cpu usage spikes going from 0 to 21% on occasion with nothing running. What does this mean?:confused:

I set it all up at default to check it out than opened MBM5 and taskmanager and noticed the mbm process spikes. So I turned it off and I'm seeing that in performance it spikes from 0 to as high as 5%.

Sounds like normal spot usage of the CPU as needs be. I wouldn't worry.

I'm glad to hear that. I did'nt want to break this rig just yet.
