I have seen when i mine Monero in pc, the cpu utilized goes to 95% to 100% most of the time, i want to keep it to 75 to 80%, what can i do? will it work by specifying the threads? I have a 4 core pc.


Typically if you have an AES-NI capable processor you will find the "sweet spot" at 1/2 the number of cores you have, so you won't ever be mining to 100% anyway. Right now we don't have a mechanism to throttle it beyond that, but we are working hard at that exact thing as part of the Smart Mining effort.

For yam miner you can define how many cores will be mining with parameter "-t #" where # is number of cores. I have Pentium i5 and with 4 cores and -t 2 show me 80% utilization.
