Ok, so im new to the pc building. So I dont know a whole lot yet. I built my first computer last year and i have recently upgraded to me new hardware.

Everything was working just fine for 2-3 weeks. Over the last few days Core 1 would be under 45%-70% constant load while idling. I turned off my pc and unplugged everything and gave it a good blow out. This seemed to clear it up for about 24 hrs. Then it started again. Also 3 out of 8 core randomly got parked which i have never noticed before. And wouldnt start up under stress. I change the settings in "regedit" so that they would always be working.

The second time my core started to have a constant usage while idling i noticed in the resource monitor that "system interrupts" was using a huge amount. So i gave it anouther cleaning and it seemed to bring down the usage to normal levels. When i look at the resource monitor it says there are still system interrupts. They are only using about 0.02.

Is there a permanent fix? Is there always system interrupts?

Well that is about it I think. Help would be awesome. Thank you.

System interrupts are a normal part of system activity. "parking" cores when the system is not busy saves power.

Not sure you have a problem at all. If you think too much CPU time is being taken up, then you need to be looking at the task manager to see what is running.
