    Hi All,

    New to the world of home security cameras. I have a total of 22MPs worth of cameras running (5 cameras) on my system and it is constantly running the CPU to 100% I have tried multiple things to lessen the usage of blue iris but seems the system isn't having much luck. I'm running a Kingdel Fanless Mini Desktop Computer, Mini PC with Intel i7 5th Gen. Broadwell CPU, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 2xHDMI, 2xNIC, 1xSPDIF, Wi-Fi, 4xUSB3.0, Card Reader, Windows 10 Pro. Its a small computer but seemed to work well enough for 2 cameras. I have all video being stored on an external and am wondering if I just need a better computer or if you have any recommendations.

    Thanks
