    Highly unlikely it's hardware.

    Find what process is running when it does it that uses it all.
    wipe your paws.

    so google chrome is causing the cpu to go to only about 30% but it maxes out a single core for some reason do you know why it would only make a single core jump to max out?

    what plugins do you have - a good chance that one of those can play up and max out a single core
