Some time ago my pc began to run at 100% cpu when playing games. It first started when i booted up a game, but now it is all the time. When playing stuff like Dota2, apex and CS:GO. Found out recently that my GPU is also at 100% when playing apex atleast. I tried updating my firmware on my motherboard, freshly installed Windows 10 again. Nothing. Still the same problems.
I ran some benchmark tests, and it shows that everything is above average, so i guess something must be wrong with it.
I debated with my self if i should get a new CPU, thinking about the ryzen 5 3600 with the asus b450 am-4 motherboard. But i just wanted to make sure that my cpu is really the problem. Or if there is naything i could do to solve the problem first.

Thanks in advance.

My temp is rising, but only because it runs at 100% all the time when playing. it is idle at around 35 celcius.
The problem startet around 2 months ago. Both components are around 2 years old
