I have closed firefox and thunderbird and psensor and qbitorrent and a look at system monitor under Processes shows zero cpu usage for any of the processes shown there.

 

If I reboot....the problem goes away.

 

If I shutdown....and then do a normal startup the problem is there again.

If you're using the same installation that you were using with your old motherboard and CPU, it will have drivers installed for your old motherboard and CPU.
 
It's testament to Linux' durability and adaptability that it works at all. :)
 
As you are effectively using a new computer, I recommend reinstalling Mint.

Agreed.

 

Whenever you get new main hardware, you should do a re-install. When installing Linux will detect what drivers it needs and install them, getting rid of all the others. Its actually kind of cool. Instead of having to download drivers like MS, its all right there in the kernel. So once installed everything is ready to go for you.
