Yeah, something aint right there.

I've got a focusrite saffire at 48khz, 24 bit, and only an i5 2500k and 16gb. An asus P8Z68-V from around 2012.

100% CPU use, 16 tabs open in Opera, torrent running, 35 track Reaper project playing, video loaded on 3 tracks, loads of Waves plugins running, a sample based vsti...

No drop outs. No lag. Latency is up high as I'm only editing, I'd turn everything off for recording or adding more synths and effects, but I'm yet to really stress it out that much tbh using BFD3, Waves, Kontakt, lots of Positive Grid BIAS and a bunch of other stuff. I dont use many softsynths tbh.

System optimisation is essential in Windows, and quality of parts, overclocking options etc for the system parts (if they can be overclocked and be stable, those parts are better and likely longer lasting, and can be underclocked better for longevity).

Anyway, yeah, sounds a bit off to me. I'd expect more out of a system that well specc'd compared to mine.
