    I'm interested in seeing what CPU usage you run your rigs at. If you have multiple rigs at multiple percentages, select all ranges that you run, and feel free to post a list of what you have running at what percentages

    I'll start. I run at nothing other than 100%, even on the thermally challenged laptop

    I run my primary only at 40% because I am either editing or gaming. I turn this comp off every night.

    My 24/7 cruncher's:

    HP- 90%
    Dell- 80%

    100%. It doesn't matter because WCG works in spikes... it goes up to 100% then backs off. The amount of time it stays at 100% is based on whatever percentage of your cpu time you told it to take. You might as well leave it at 100%, unless you're using WCG as a tool to cure thermal paste by creating lots of heat/idle cycles.

    I run it at 100% or not at all. I often have to kill WCG to play my games because it screws up the audio. :(

    70% at the most since all my rigs crunch and fold. Anything higher I run into stability issues.

    Usually and most of the time 100% 24/7. Only when playing demanding games I put it on 60%.

    I run both of my rigs at 100% and my moms laptop at 50%. I will only stop it if I have stability issues in games.
