Hey all, so I have an i7 5960x cpu mounted in China's finest, a Huananzhi x99 motherboard. I have literally just finished the build and noticed it's using very high %'s for cpu in all instances. Idle is like 35% and gaming is always 99% which I highly doubt should be the case. I only play light titles like l4d2 and ripoff CoD games, with a mix of other titles from time to time.

Upon inspection, cinebench is showing 2 cores 4 threads, msconfig and anywhere else is showing less than the 8 cores it has.

I've already tried enabling hyperthread in bios, I've gone through resetting the bios several times, gone through msconfig multiple times, and even fresh windows install. Still unable to achieve 8cores showing up 😓 and still high cpu usage.

Help??

Thanks!!
