Whenever I load up Rainbow Six or Fortnite my CPU goes into 80% load or more and my GPU stays at less than 10 and then I crash. I have a 2060 super so its not an old or a trash card. And my drivers and windows versions are all up to date

Whenever I play a game my GPU doesn't do anything it stays at around 10 percent usage and that causes my CPU to overheat and I end up crashing. I degraded drivers, I did a fresh windows restart, my graphics card also says its running at 300 Mhz which isn't right since I have a 2060 super. IDK what to do. These are my specs i5 9600k,16gb of ram at 3000mhz, and my motherboard is an Asus prime z390-a.

I think its only overheating because the card isn't working and it cant handle games by itself so if that's the case i can't fix it until my card is fixed
