    It's likely a hardware issue. Make sure that your drives are all on DMA and not PIO (or does that cause spikes in interrupts, not System? I don't remember, but it's a place to start)

    A CPU overclock could not cause this. But as I suggested in my post, a problem with storage could, and if you are not using regular storage drivers, well, that would be a good place to start.

    Now I run with the official (intel rapid storage) a few days, and has worked well, but now for 5 mins ago starts NT Kernel & System eat up about 13% cpu power again.
    What the hell can it be wrong?

    it is driver issue.
    to identify the driver in qustion, enable driver verifier(verifier.exe)
    click run>verifier.exe select one driver at a time and let it run and look for deadlock and the upgrade

    Thanks for your help, will be testing the hint you gave me.
    But are you sure it's driving problems?

    tnx.

    It's definitely a problem at the driver level or lower (driver, firmware, or hardware). It's unlikely to be a Windows or application problem.

    Hardware = grafikcard? Cpu? Memory? Moderbord? Harddrive?
    Do I need to replace all part to get the computer to function normally?

    Not CPU, RAM, or HDD (the controller is still a candidate). As for which, there is no way to tell without more diagnostic tests. Did you try to suggestion in post #7? That might help you narrow down the culprit. It's either a driver or the hardware controlled by that driver.
