Ok so I have been having problems with cpu load issues and now after running some test I found not only was I haveing really high Load (50%+ at idle) but I also have bad ram performance. Here are my specs AMD 64 2800 754 Gigabyte GA-K8NS Pro ( nForce3 250 Chipset) 1gb Pc3200 Corsair Value Select GF4 Ti4200 x8 128mb 120gb Baracuda 350w Enermax PSU I am running my ram at 200mhz stock for some reason it wants to go 166. Anyways I am getting 1987 MIPS on the processor when really I should be up to about 5400 MIPS and ram I am running at 2413 MB/S when I should be at like 6700 MB/s. This is right after a fresh reload. I do not have anyviruses and even in safe mode it does this. All the drivers are installed. I am not going to even mention my prime95 test scores because well first off They arnt done and second none of the scores even beat a duron. Really I think it is the mobo because I bought it off a friend that was upgrading and before he upgraded he had a problem with it not starting up. I would just get stuck on the system dyinostics(sp).
