It might, innodb-encryption-threads=4 means there are four threads that
are encrypting your data in the background. On the other hand, you don't
have innodb-encrypt-tables, so may be they don't.

Do you use enable_encryption.preset config?

Does the load disappear if you remove innodb-encryption-threads?
Does the load disappear if you add innodb-encrypt-tables?
Does the load disappear if you set innodb-encryption-rotation-iops to
some low number (like 1)?

A user-mode CPU load shouldn't really crash the system. Are you sure
your hardware (e.g. RAM) is ok?
