For months I have been trying to fix this and I need someone that has a lot of knowledge about this because I am no computer part specialist, In most of my games I play I get 60%+ CPU usage even on the lowest settings

Here are my specs: https://pastebin.com/Txp10uyx

I normally only have discord running in the background because my games take up a huge chunk of my CPU. I play Sea of Thieves, Rocket League, CS: GO, Rainbow Six Siege, Overwatch, Fortnite, Apex Legends, and more on the lowest settings but they still use 60%+ of my cpu, I have downloaded the recent update of my driver, I have updated my pc, I have completely reset my pc 3 times, I've tried cleaning my pc, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the games, but still nothing works.

Hello,

You have a lower end 7th gen I5 CPU that has 4 cores, you are going to see much more usage per core because it physically doesn’t have tons, and games these days are a good bit more demanding. That usage is definitely normal for that CPU.
