low cpu/gpu usage gtx 1060 strix + i5 4690

so after my gtx 760 died, ive gone out and i bought a 1060 strix. before i even put it in i reinstalled windows quickly.
put the card in, checked everything in bios, installed drivers.
i tried to run csgo and the framerate was very unstable 140-230 fps, while with my old 760 it was a constant 230-240. at some points it even dropped to 90fps or lower.
now my first guess was "ok, maybe its the old source engine, its still playable"
but then i reinstall Rise of the Tomb Raider and it was really weird, at the beggining the fps was 60-70 and that was alright but when i loaded up the next scene, this happened

low gpu and cpu usage and locked at 9 fps

specs:

i5 4690 @3.5 Ghz
GTX 1060 Strix
Asus z97-k mobo
12 GB of Kingston Blue DDR3 ram @ 1600Mhz
500W PSU

    go into the msi afterburner options and enable cpu temp monitoring in the OSD


    usually when fps drop to that level the cpu is thermal throttlling

    the OSD in the screenshot already shows the cpu temp..................

    all the temperatures are provided in the screenshot, the cpu temperature never goes above 47 degrees and the max gpu temp was 64 degrees

    ahhh the image had not loaded for me for some reason


    you said that happened after loading a new scene?

    run the HDD health tool, make sure its not dying


    run memtest86 as well, you have an odd amount of ram


    if you re-installed windows did you make sure all mobo drivers etc where installed?

    have windows set to high performance under power options?

    are you using adapters to run the 1060?

    that is just the number of how much ram is currently being used not the amount of ram i have.
    high performance in power options is on.
    drivers are up to date.
    ill try to run the hdd health tool but i dont think the HDD is a problem
