First post sorry if this is bad.

My PC has started to only run games at 1-40 fps so I looked around and found [This Post] and did the first four steps with no luck.
I then started monitoring my parts and noticed that while running games my GPU and CPU only use around 30-40 watts and the utilization is around 40% for both too.
Could I have an issue with my PSU?

Possible Coincidence: My power brick for my Iphone stopped working around the time this started to happen and it is plugged in near my PC.

My PC is an IBuyPower prebuild.
Parts:
Mobo - asrock x570 phantom gaming 4
CPU - Ryzen 7 3700x
GPU - NVIDIA Gigabyte 3060
RAM - 2x 8GB DDR4

I think I might be very dumb. My idle temps for my CPU are around 90C so I think I am getting thermal throttled. I am going to try to reapply thermal paste and see how it works.
