Hi guys, new to the forum, gona introduce in the other topic just after this post, so here's the question, got a new i5-4690K, while playing Payday2 using MSI afterburner i'm looking at my usage, first three cores use about 50-70%, but the 4th core uses around 85-100% is that a normal thing? The rest of the hardware is:

MSI Z97-G43
Intel Core i5-4690K
MSI Radeon R9 280X 3G
XFX TS 550Watt
Kingston HyperX Fury 1866Mhz (4x2gb)

I dont use a lot of intel CPUs a lot, and I am unfamiliar with that particular program, but ive noticed with AMD quads, that often different programs dont always use the same percentage of each core. If I were to make an educated guess, assuming your computer is 100% malware free, that this is probably normal behavior, but I cannot say that with 100% certainty.
