Basically my i5 9400f always hits 100% in like every task , either every game / program has gotten more resource hungry or this cpu just doesnt know itself!!

I can't even get proper scrubbing / playback in premiere pro , when i play games like MW , GTA , BO4 and other titles , my cpu is almost always at a 100% and like sometimes the gpu has less usage in games compared to the cpu. Also i am pretty sure my task manager is broken cuz it doesnt show the right usage details for my cpu or either my gpu.
but like ughhhh idk whyyyy it does dis

What's the rest of your system specs?

List;
Cpu cooler
Motherboard
Ram - include how many sticks and frequency
Hdd/ssd - Also include available space
Gpu
Psu
Case
Windows and where it's installed

Check idle/load temps and frequency with Coretemp.

High usages on 6 core cpus has become the norm nowadays in a lot of games.

Things to look into;

Background apps or too much multitasking - Cortana, Game bar, other apps consuming too much resource or causing other performance issues.

Fps - limiting fps amount the cpu needs to pre-render before handing them over to the gpu.

Temps & frequencies - Throttling cpu/gpu because of poor ventilation / cooler.

Ram - dual vs single channel performance.

Fresh or continued Windows install on the current hardware. Fresh install is always recommend after a motherboard change.
