  1. Seems like CPU overheating. Problem with AMD socket is that not all software are reliable with getting the temperature of it. Try disable 2 or 4 cores from the CPU if your BIOS settings allow that, also, go to Control Panel -> Power Options -> Change Plan Settings -> Change Advanced Power Settings -> Processor Power Management -> Change it from 100% to 90%, if you no longer get problems, then its CPU overheating on high usage, you should get a good cooler and thermal paste then.

    I have a decent after market cooler (I bought it for OC'ing but my motherboard doesn't allow that so I just leave it as it is), and judging by HWMonitor I get around 12-16 C degrees in idle. I also changed the thermal paste when I got the new cooler (a few months ago). So I am pretty sure this isn't an overheating problem..

    here's a pic of my temperatures:

  3. What's that 101C temperature?!

    Also check your power options in GPU control panel and Windows Control Panel.

    They're fine, gpu control panel is always set to high performance, and if I set windows high performance the performance increases only in desktop, in game I feel like it' even more laggy with that one instead of balanced.

    Dunno about the temperature, it's definitely showing it wrong.

    The way Latency checkers work is you're supposed to be disabling Services and/or Devices that you don't need until you notice your latency goes to normal. So basically run LatencyMon and while it's running start disabling things you don't need (sound, network, keyboard, mouse etc.) until it normalizes do the same for Services.
