Hello everyone,

 

I am using my computer for video editing,

having problems with CPU usage, especially

when i am working on color correction,

it reaches 100%...

also CPU temperature reaches to 78-80 C

 

My question is should i Overclock the CPU and buy a better cooler 

or its time to buy a new processor?

 

i am using Adobe Premiere for the editing

 

My PC Specs:

 

Motherboard - Gigabyte GA 770T - USB 3 

 

CPU - AMD Phenom II x4 945 3000 MHz 

 

System memory - (X4 = 16GM RAm)  Kingston 4GB PC3-10600u 2Rx8 DDR3 1333Mhz NON ECC  

 

Graphic Card - ATI Readeon HD 5770

What cooler? Stock? I highly recommend better cooler and perhaps better case. You won't get significantly better processor for that MB. CPU usage 100% means that CPU is fully utilized, that's generally good thing.

What computer case are you using?

Sounds like a bad airflow issue.

If that happens when working, then software is taking everything out from processor. Buy processor with more cores. Alternative: adjust process (what is process name of that software) priority level to small with task manager. Then computer will be more responsive.

That cpu usage is normal. Using adobe premiere on that old hardware is going to be difficult. I would look into building a new pc. Give us a budget and we will build a parts list.

You could upgrade to a phenom II x6 for $80. Keep in mind you will have to reapply thermal paste and a better cooler.

You could also upgrade the cooler for something like the cooler master hyper 212 evo and maybe overclock.

IMO...the slowness may result from overheating and the fact that rendering takes a lot of CPU cycles.  I would either replace the CPU cooler/heatsink or at least remove the current one and apply fresh thermal paste...and see if that solved it.
