Fluid sim not using cpu?


I was playing around with fluid simulation on my new comp and I noticed that even at extremely high baking resolutions (460) the fluid sim was only using about 75% of my cpu power. I would like to know why and if there is a way to fix this.

Thank you,


Just made a quick test with an older file (but baked on version 2.49). The baking seams to be using only one CPU at a time but the system dispaches the work on each available CPUs with a 100% use yet, at each CPU change.
But maybe the baking process isn’t the most hungry one, after all. The calculation looks rather going smooth ahead at a good pace.
