okay, where do i begin.
since a couple of months i've been getting 100% cpu usage while streaming, even though i know it's an old pc, i NEVER had a problem, temps are fine, i even oc it to 4.7 GHz and it still happens, formatted all my HDDs. updated everything.
could it be just the cpu dying? or the power supply?(even though oc the cpu is stable) i can't buy anything at this time, so im stuck with this pc, so i hope i'ts not that.
any suggestions?

DETAILS:

►AMD FX 8350 8-Core 4.0 GHz Black Edition
►Corsair H80i GT Liquid cooling
►Motherboard ASUS M5A97 R2.0
►Sentey Hard Blue power Suply 700W HBP700-SM
►Western Digital 1TB SATA 3 Caviar Black Edition 72MB Buffer* X2*
►Western Digital 500Gb SATA 2 - Caviar Black Edition 32MB Buffer
►Kingston HyperX Genesis 2x 8GB 1866mhz (16GB)
►GeForce GTX 1650 4Gb Evga Super Xc Black

PS: streaming+playing CoD: modern warfare at 1080 was possible months ago, now i'ts impossible.

CPU at 100%


Thanks in advance.
 
Are you sure the cpu is no throttling? Does the cpu stay at 4.7GHz whole streaming. The reason I ask idols that motherboard is a poor choice for a 125w FX8350 and low end FM3+ boards were prone to throttling 125w CPU’s even at stock speeds let alone overclocked.

yeah, it was completely fine for like what, 10 years? maybe less, since a bought it just as it is, the only thing that was changed was the gpu over the years. never had a problen until a month or so
