I did a search but couldn't find anything on it that pertained to my issue. For some odd reason "kernel_task" random spikes to 280% usage for about 3 mins or more. This is a brand new Macbook Air (I got it last night), I have tried letting it do its thing but it constantly does this. I'm at my wits end as it completely bogs down my system, and fans got to max rpm. Is there anything I can do to fix this?
