Question No stuttering/input lag when GPU usage is low. How is this possible?

Started playing Dying Light and Dishonored 2 today which I can run on High graphical settings and get around 100 FPS.

When I play these two games the CPU usage usually sits at around 90-100% and GPU usage at 95-100% which gives me horrible stuttering and input lag. But as soon as I turn all the settings down to VERY LOW the GPU usage drops to 50-65% and CPU usage stays at the same levels while the stuttering and input lag gets dramatically reduced.

I have always suspected that something is wrong with my CPU/MOBO... Does this finally prove that I should probably get it replaced? I appreciate all the help <3
