High CPU utilization

Recommended Posts


Tbird 1.4 GHz

ECS K7S5A (SiS735 chipset)

512 MB of ram

Maxtor 6L040J2 (40GB, 7200rpm)

GF2 pro 64MB

WinXP with SP1, default Windows SiS IDE drivers

DMA is on

I ran HDTach 2.61, and everything else looks normal. Access time is about 12 ms, average read speed is little less than 35000 kps.

But recently CPU utilization is unbelievably high: around 54%!

This happened after I installed extra ram into my computer (I only had 256 MB before). Before that, CPU utilization was ''only'' around 10%.

Otherwise computer works normally (games run much better with extra ram).

Sis has a new ver 2.03 of their IDE drivers. I have a friend with a Sis 745 (similar to yours) that I will ask about this. I no longer have a 735 board laying around.
