Question Low CPU, RAM, and GPU Usage

I've noticed that in some games (Borderlands 2, Destiny 2, Metro Exodus), FPS gets very low at times, while CPU, RAM, and GPU usage all remain low. In other titles and benchmarking applications like Heaven, I see the expected performance with much higher GPU usage. Usage percentages don't change much when applying different graphical settings in-game. As far as CPU usage on a per-core basis, all is normal from what I can tell. Temperatures also remain steady, with the CPU hitting a max of 60-65C and the GPU never going past 65C. Neither the CPU nor the GPU are overclocked.

I should also note that programs like Speccy and EVGA Precision report CPU temps of over 100C, whereas Ryzen Master, MSI Afterburner, and HWInfo report the temps mentioned above.

What I've tried:
Uninstalling graphics drivers
Setting any sort of power management setting I could find to prefer maximum performance
Disabling HPET

Specs:
Ryzen 5 2600
RTX 2070
MSI B450 Tomahawk Motherboard
G.Skill Aegis 2x8GB 2400mhz RAM

Any help would be very much appreciated!
