This is a good thing. It means your computer is only using 3-5% of the CPU's resourses. System IDLE is just that, that amount of the system that is IDLE, not working.
system idle at 95-97 regularly
is painfully too little RAM. Most performance issues start and end here. RAM is so inexpensive these days, even the homeless can afford more RAM!
That is the issue that needs to be addressed. Of course, overclocking your system is going to create a lot of heat, and possibly damage hardware. I know that overclocking your computer is the 'cool' thing to do, but if you really want to enhance the performance of a computer you must first make sure it has enough RAM. This would be number one! Doing otherwise would be like putting a NOS system on your car, even though the car has 4 flat tires! It won't help, and possibly will hurt. Performance in that car would be improved by putting air in the tires first, and I think this is what we are looking at here.
system freezes regularly
Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
