The Linode CPU monitor shows % based on the total number of CPU's in use. For a 6 core Linode, the maximum available usage is 600%.
Windows Task Manager shows CPU usage based on an average of the cores available.
This means that a 6 core Linode using 510% of CPU resources would be reflected in Task Manager as about 85%.
This is not an issue that needs to be corrected, just a difference in the way the data is displayed. You can read a little more about it in this previous Community Site Post:
