i have dsl lite i=765kbps / o=133kbps. in having used both ktorrent in f8 and
ctorrent in sl5.2, both used up to 85% cpu.

after watching graph in ktorrent, i disabled several sites that where being
checked but showed little to no action and disabled file access in, which
increased thru put from active sites. do not recall exact cpu change, but it
was worth it.

with ctorrent, i again disabled file access which dropped cpu usage to below
70%.

have you tried setting nice?
