Well, that is odd. Have you set any affinities or messed with the priorities?

After a fresh reboot I see. Maybe check for any programs that might be reserving a chunk of CPU time. Could be malware that is actually using the CPU and just not reporting it to Windows.

Do idle temperatures look correct?

idle temps are ok around 38°C
