Very low cpu usage while plotting.Fresh installation of windows helped

Bought a new computer 1,5 months back and was really eager to start plotting with better gear. Windows had preinstalled programs, that I’m never fond of. I was thinking to myself that I’ll install fresh windows after nvme needs cleaning. Plotting took 4-7 hours with different settings(have been using madmax as well).

Yesterday finally new fresh installation of windows and started using madmax, cpu peaking at 60-70%(before around 20% or lower). I have no clue what could have caused the problem. Of course this had positive impact on plotting speed, but still need to run different settings to get better understanding how low time I can get.
