With the 970 I was getting 100 FPS+ all the time, after upgrading to the 1080, I get around 65-90 rarely 100

SPECS:
CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 1700x
GPU - ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080
RAM - 16 GB DDR4 (not sure exactly which one)
If I missed any important components please let me know, all help is appreciated and I really want to get this fixed since I've been playing CS:GO for years and want to continue :~)

Did you happen to buy this card used or new?

Download and run MSI Afterburner while you are gaming to monitor what the card is doing, temps, clock speed, usage etc. If anything looks weird then report back.

Another thing to check is in the Windows and Nvidia Control panels make sure your setting are put to performance and not balanced or energy saving. Also check your CPU temps, it is entirely possible you knocked your cooler a bit and may be thermal throttling on the CPU.

I did buy this card used but it was in pretty much brand new condition (according to the seller). I downloaded and ran MSI afterburner while in a deathmatch in CS:GO and temps were good, never reached above 60, but GPU usage was low, averaging around only 20%. Could this be the issue? I have max performance set in NVIDIA Control Panel and in windows power settings. Regarding the possible internal CPU cooler problem I could check that out if there is no solution for the 20% GPU usage, but I highly doubt that would be the reason my GPU usage is so low.

can u check other games to see if its just cs go or the problem is with your pc
Checked Overwatch and Fortnite and there was a general increase in average FPS. Seems to be a problem with just CS:GO but I'm inclined to believing it has something to do with hardware because it happened right after the upgrade.
