If I run the inplace large FFT or the small FFT, it runs as expected. All this is the torture test section of prime95. The only time it exhibits the behavior of using 5% of the CPU is when I select Blend from the torture test menu. It is spending all the time thrashing the harddrive. The paging file goes up to 1.5 Gbytes and it just continuously accesses the harddrive. I've flashed the bios to the latest available. No change. I'm sure it will go back to normal behavior if I reinstall windows. Removing and reinstalling any other application has no effect on the performance. Easy to do as there is nothing installed on the machine other than windows and prime95 and the monitor programs I was trying to use.
