tour93 Posted May 12, 2012 Report Share Posted May 12, 2012 Unfortunately it's time to leave utorrent, I used it for years (my first was utorrrent 1.1.7) and was very happy with it all these years, but lately it became a CPU hog, plus the fact that it's not open source anymore is a little annoying.( I left Vuze, used to be Azera, if I remember correctly, because it was a mem hog.)Just having it up, not downloading anything, just uploading, it was using 35% of the CPU. I checked all the setting that some recommended but nothing worked.So I googled for other software options and found qBittorrent, it looks like utorrent but is open source, still maintained, and works better, I think.First thing that I saw was different is the download speed, way faster. Then with no download and only upload it uses only 3% max of the CPU, with download it can reach 10%.Unless utorrent becomes better or fixes it's problem not adding useless crap in their software I will comeback to it, but for now I will stick with qBittorrent until something new comes up.
