"svchost.exe (netsvcs)" continously using Internet data in Windows 8.

This should mostly be the Windows updates that are downloading for your computer. However, if there is any error with Windows updates or any corruptions in its configuration, the updates will be downloading in an unlimited loop even if the Windows updates are disabled.
You can resolve this issue by running the Windows update troubleshooter in administrator mode that is available within the control panel.

Troubleshooting contains several troubleshooters that can automatically fix some common problems with your Windows 8 PC.

To open the troubleshooting in Windows 8,
Search Troubleshoot and open the troubleshooter.
Once there, select Windows update troubleshooter and run it in Administrator mode.

If it does not fix the issue, then run the fixit from the link to reset the Windows Update components.

For any previous versions of operating system, running the Microsoft Fixit for Windows update will resolve the issue.
Let me know for any further assistance.

High CPU Usage after graphics card upgrade or replace and WHEA-Logger Event ID: 17 logging in Event viewer.

The issue with high CPU usage occurs after upgrading the graphics card in an older motherboard.
This happens due to System interrupts and logging of error in the Event Viewer, as there is a conflict with the power management. The only option is to check for any BIOS updates and if there is none, you can disable the Windows power management to resolve the issue.

Go to Control Panel in the Start Menu.

Open Power Options in the Control Panel.

Select Change plan settings next to the power plan you want to set.

Select Change advanced power settings.

Select Change settings that are currently unavailable.

Set the Link State Power Management under PCI Express, select OFF and then click OK to save the changes.

This should also resolve the Event viewer error (WHEA-Logger Event ID: 17 - A corrected hardware error has occurred).
