    Lighting Service keeping processor at high speed

    I was looking at the processor utilization on the Z490 board and noticed, even though running a Balanced Power Scheme, the processor was running at 2% utilization and 4.65 GHz. I thought that was a little odd so I noticed the Lighting Service, which I assume is for RGB, was using the 2%.

    When I ended that task in Task Manager, the processor speed dropped immediately to around 1.8 GHz or so and stayed there. I think I have the utilities updated on this system but not sure why a Lighting Service would need to run a i9 10900K at such high speeds to do what it does.

    I will keep an eye on it to see if after some period of time is allows the processor to slow down but I did watch it for several minutes and the processor stayed at highest speed.. I do notice the memory and motherboard RGB lighting, with the Lighting Service disabled, is not pulsing as it normally does which is probably the expected behavior.

    Thanks for reading.
