I get frame drops in every game, sometimes when there's a lot going on, sometimes not. I can get a constant 59-60fps for a little bit then it drops in any range from about 40-5 or 10 frames. (basing this off of OverWatch off memory)

 

Hardware:

AMD Radeon R9 390 Series

AMD FX-9370 Eight-Core Processor

MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 Motherboard

16GB Ram

750W power supply

 

Attached CPUID HWMonitor stats while running Rise of the Tomb Raider maxed out to push the limits

 

I can try to provide any other information necessary

Any other things running in the background? Just run the system normally without gaming and inspect the task manager and see if anything in there is causing the cpu to jump 100%. Are you overclocking the CPU or GPU? I noticed that your second picture is showing the 12v+ is at 13.8+ that might be a problem. The program could be putting out wrong numbers. Check those within the bios itself. If you have a volt meter handy I would test the 12volt rail going to GPU Yellow/Black wires. It could be completely the opposite and the video card is starved for power. R9's are a power hungry video card. What is the make/model of the Power Supply Unit? Could be a issue that the PSU is not delivering enough volts & amperes to the video card.

I make sure to not have anything running except for discord, steam, and spotify. And on normal startup the cpu stays normal. 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139012 this is my power supply

and everything else is a little too technical for me, but i can give more information if needed.

That is a good PSU. However, you could have bought a lemon. I would boot into bios using the Del key and verify your voltage readings. The picture that you have posted shows the 12v+ is 13.8v+ and your 5V+ is under what it should be. The software could be wrong.
