    Sure, download Speedfan 4.32 (or newer) and Orthos Prime. Open Speedfan it will show a load bar for both cores. Set orthos to Small FFT's and Priority 9, you will see both bars at 100% in Speedfan.

    Or Crtl-Alt-Del and see if there are 2 boxes for the CPU load in Windows Task Manager.

    Hope that helps! :toast:

    If you want more constant, find a version of Everest Ultimate and set it to use OSD (On Screen Display)...talk to Russianboy if you want to be a Pirate...HAARRR!
