There's a program I run all day that does chess analysis. It's causing my computer to run consistently at 100% CPU Usage (According to Windows Task Manager), but despite this my computer seems to run reasonably for everything else I want to do on it.
I'd nonetheless like it to have a CPU Usage that is slightly less. How can I go about doing this? What would be a sensible/safe amount of CPU usage?
I have Windows 7, i7-2860QM CPU @ 5.50 GHz, 16.0 GB RAM.
