One will go to 50%. With Resource Monitor I was able to find that a process running my sound card equalizer was using a lot of CPU.

HL2 on Steam also won't appear to take up many resources because a lot of the graphic-intensive work is being handled by your 8600m GPU and the Northbridge. I usually max out watching flash vids and doing handbrake encodes... Let us know a. Just checked Everest and core temp and core 2 is running 100% load if this helps.

You'll also realize why maxing out your CPU all the time is not desirable, and not something you want to be doing all the time.
