GPU at 80-100% all the time

Post here anything to do with technical issues with computers in general. Don't expect a response but I'm sure people would be happy to try.

If your power supply unit does not have a enough watts for your system (especially the GPU) then the GPU will be straining to get more power. This makes the power % very high and can brick your GPU.

What is your PSU wattage? Mine is 850. I always suggest to people who are first time PC builders to buy a PSU that is 200-300 Watts more than their GPU requirements. My GPU requires a 500W PSU
