In certain games, yes. It might only be a year or so old, but there's a reason you have processors like i5's and i7's not to mention HEDT i7's and soon we'll have i9's as well.
His processor is NOT the issue for the ultra old CS:GO that uses DX9 and H1Z1 build on an old engine from year 2012.

Under 'Power Option' in Windows 10, is yours set to 'High Performance'? or 'Balanced'?

I have an asus dual gtx 1060 6gb OC, intel i5 7600k, 16gbs of ddr4 2400mhz, 450w power supply and my pc will run PUBG usually around 110-135 on ultra settings and cs go always runs over 200 usually 300-400, gta in ultra runs 60fps but I like ultra more than more fps in gta but I'm 90% sure it's running a lot better than yours. Make sure you look at you bios, and download all drivers for your gpu, mine also runs at 2000mhz which is higher than most 1080tis

Well, it's not looking good.

Here are three pictures from the Tweak II software (link to Imgur).

As you can se the usage is only at about 50% :( The fans only kick in at one time. There is more info I can post if it will help get a bigger picture.

After the two first tests I reinstalled nVidia Experience and the latest driver. As you can see in the third picture, it didn't help.

What is the problem here?
Also those pics are what my gpu is at usually and when idle my fan goes down to 0 like yours but in game it's at 66% or higher
