CPU @ 100%

I am running the SETI (Search For Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) programme BOINC and as a result my CPU runs at 100% most of the time. Anyone got any suggestions on a suitable piece of software to control it (I don't want ET's phone call home to overheat my CPU !).

Unfortunately Seti at home involves a load of heavy duty number crunching and does work a PC hard, have a look in screensaver settings to see if you can adjust the priority. If not I'm not aware of any third party software to 'tone it down'.

click here for some interesting readingseems that the power load for seti can be 90Watts.
