Still getting high CPU usage using the desktop app

Explorer | Level 4

I know you have already done a guide to this? But CPU usage is still crazy high (200 while syncing - not just large quantities but also in case of smaller amount of files. This is crazy - Can't you guys fix this or make it possible to limit the cpu usage? Seriously Regretting that I just bought a year of plus.
