Does anyone know why on i3wm always one of my cores is running at about 50%? On cinnamon it's fine, but on i3wm it's not.

CPU: i5 6600k @ 4.6GHz

    Seems pretty odd,
    Have you tried searching for processes that use more cpu-power than usual.

    Odd, usually i3 takes way less to keep it going.

    Check your config, you probably have a background program crashing and restarting in a loop. Maybe something used by i3bar isn't installed, etc.

    Nvm seems like i3 blocks likes using one of my cores for some reason

    @xugS6fz6A7P8cL5 oh. i3blocks != i3wm.

    If you have all the transparency enabled between windows, and no GPU set up properly, that's your culprit for sure.
