My old cpu(i7 6700k)recently started rising to 100% usage while streaming and playing games and even sometimes while playing games especially in modern warfare and even games like fortnite. So i decided to finally upgrade to a 9700k but I’m still getting the same problem even with a completely fresh install of windows and a new motherboard but now I just get more FPS. My voltage and temps seem fine for everything I can post logs if that helps.

i7 9700k
4x4 16gb 2666 Corsair lpx ram
MSI z390 a pro
Gigabyte 2080
Corsair cx750m

I have a new power supply coming in with 2x16gb 3200 lpx ram today I just want to make sure this problem doesn’t stay with even more parts and I’d like to use the old ones for a streaming pc so fixing them would be great

A video game will try to get the highest performance it possibly can with the given hardware. That means it is normal for a game to take up 100 percent this is actually a good thing. Upgrading your cpu didn't solve the problem because now that you have a more powerful cpu the game will still try to utilize all of it and just give better performance. To get under 100 percent on cpu you would have to become gpu bottle necked, or ram bottle necked, or software bottle necked,... And that would mean worse performance in games.
