We have observed from task manager that SQL 2012 instances that we have recently installed consume 5% CPU even when no user sessions or SQL Agent jobs are running. These are 40 core servers. This seems abnormally high for an instance servicing no user requests. We do not see this with previous versions of SQL. Ideas?

You don't have any monitoring running or any other processes hitting SQL Server? How about the operating system. Anything running there? Do you know that the 5% CPU utilization is due to the SQL Server engine?
