    29.99% :)

    How many cores? Too many variables.

    If you start hearing drop outs then it's too much.

    You can try loading the DPC latency check, then load and run all your apps and see what it says.

    As long as your level is floating your okay. It's only a problem when you pinned above 95% for long periods.

    What is your reason for keeping your CPU utilization under 30%?
