    PC is not using even 25% of CPU when rendering

    JeffRozz

      I have an i7-920, overclocked to 3.5GHz, 120GB SSD benchmarked at 225MB/s read, 200MB/s write, a RAID0 SATAII HDDs benchmarked at 190MB/s read and 150MB/s write.

       

      When I am rendering video to an ISO, the CPU never goes above 25%, and the HDD array I am writing to blinks once every 5 seconds.

       

      Does Premier Elements have some throttle limiter in it somewhere that's holding it back? If not, is there a tuning parameter I am missing? PE's cache is set to the SSD.
