I'm running Windows Home 10.0.19045
Dell Inc.
Inspiron 3910
12th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-12700, 2100 Mhz
12 Cores - 20 Processors
Memory - 16 GB
Boinc - 7.22.2 (x64) wxWidgets Version: 3.2.2
I'm setup to run 7 Projects but only two projects are getting work: World Community Grid and Asteroids@Home

Boinc will only use 33% of CPU time. It uses all 20 Processors but only one-third of their maximum. All CPU Preferences in the Projects and the Preferences in Boinc are set to 100%. I can't find any solution on this Forum to get Boinc to use more than 33% of my CPU time.
Can someone please tell me what I have to do to get Boinc to use more than 33% CPU time in each Processor! Thanks in advance!

Which project(s) is this happening with.There have been projects in the past such as Quake Catcher Network that use almost zero processor percentage. I want to exclude the possibility that this is just down to the tasks being run.

Dave,

It's the two Projects that I stated: World Community Grid and Asteroids@Home. Also, Rosetta has ran a very few work units and the 33% was still what the total 20 processors ran at! There was one time for just a short period of time that I saw it running at 50% and I think Rosetta was running! I thought that that was because one or more projects was about to hit the Deadline. Normally, even with Rosetta running, it only would use 33% of the CPU time!
