Have you ever wondered what will happen when your CPU performance reaches 100%?
Is it okay to use a pc at 100% CPU usage
CPU usage always increases when there are a lot of process to take care. Look at the picture above and you will see the number of my Pc processes are 87. Thats okay when a computer can handle.
I have a Intel(R) core(TM) i5-4200U @ 1.60 ghz 12 Gb RAM.
its a not a gaming pc as people would think of it, because it cant even support FIFA 17.
So in 2015 i installed GTA 5 and the gameplay was okay, but there only one problem that only occurs when i play online mode. The CPU performance sometimes rises to 90 percent and an error would occur on my screen followed by rebooting of my PC .
But after i started learning more about operating system and system scheduling in classes i somehow i know what was wrong
Reaching 100% might be okay if the PC has good cooling system, But its not a Good way to keep your PC if you want to use it for long time
There are processes and other background app that are not important sometimes, closing them will be a good thing for your processor.
Have a nice day !
