The scale goes from 0-100%. Why would you think hitting the halfway mark would be a problem? I shudder to think what you'll do if anything ever maxes out your CPU.

You should be higher, raise some settings

Or maybe if you're not maxing gpu you raise settings, hell if I know.

As long as your cpu allows for it then yes.

I'd be concerned. Your cpu seems to be half asleep and was likely out late last night drinking and partying.

Does everyone here run their CPU past 100% all the time?

I do. If my CPU isn't giving 110% I take it out back beat it and tell it that it has failed and I'm looking for a new better processor.

Low end? Oh you mean the special kids? I wish the government would just put them down. They are a burden to our society!!!!!

If you only get 50% usage it could be that its running in power saver mode. Click on the battery power icon in the taskbar and set it to high performance. But make sure to change it back to power saver when youre not plugged in, as it drains the battery faster.
