    Hey guys,

    I appear to be having an issue with Razer Synapse using over 95% of my CPU whenever it runs.

    I recently upgraded to Windows 10 pro from Windows 7 pro via windows upgrade and also tried a clean install of Windows 10 as i was having the exact same issues in Windows 7.

    Tried running an older version of synapse and also updated it to the latest version with no change.

    Current specs are;
    Intel i5 4690k
    hyperx fury 2x8GB kit
    ATI 7950
    Samsung evo 120GB SSD
    Seagate 1TB storage
    Razer mamba 2014
    Razer black widow 2013

    I have tried doing some research looking for similar results but still yet to find a resolution or even any troubleshooting methods.
    I have tried booting my PC with a generic keyboard / mouse to try and rule out physical hardware but i was still getting high CPU usage.

    I raised a ticket with Razer (5 actually over the past year) and still havnt received a response so I thought i'd turn to you guys to see if anyone can help me out.


    I do enjoy using synapse but in its current state its causing too many issues and is driving me insane.

    Appreciate any input or guidance in getting this resolved.
