My PC has started to hit major bottleneck issues lately, for almost all games i'm running far less frames then i should and my CPU usage is maxing while the GPU usage is at around 20%. I know with my graphics card there will be bottle necking, but my rig should easily be able to run CSGO at over 120 frames and i cant right now. Any help would be appreciated. I also just updated my graphics and motherboard drivers so that is not the issue.

PC SPECS
GPU - RTX 2080 Ti
CPU - i9 9900k
Ram - 32 GB 3200 ddr4
Motherboard - Gigabyte z390 Aorus pro

Have you scanned your system for malware/viruses lately? Do you see any applications/programs running in Task Manager that are consuming CPU cycles at higher than expected levels?

You installed anything, other than drivers, recently?

Checked for malware/viruses about a week ago and just did again, nothing there. Nothing is taking up high amounts of CPU usage, usually when im not in games usage wont go above 10%.

Performance seems okay overall. What resolution and graphics level settings are you gaming at?
usually the highest settings with some minor tweaks. The thing is though with my specs i shouldn't be running games anywhere near what i am rn, even on the setting I run, especially when im only 1080p gaming.
