This free program lets you view your system's total CPU usage from a nice-looking interface, but don't expect any additional functionality. Though it's not actually 3D, the program's main window looks decent enough, with a meter that fluctuates according to how many system resources are in use. The meter appears to range from zero to 100, but offers no in-depth details and forces you to deal with extremely tiny fonts. Also, the installation text and license-agreement haven't been translated from an Asian language, and the program completely lacks help files. The app's most notable feature is an option for pinning the program to always-on-top mode, but that's where user customization ends. If you're looking for a simple graphic display of computer activity, this freeware is an option, though it's nothing we'd call amazing.
