Ryzen 7 3700X + RX5700 XT: 100% CPU load when streaming Overwatch and PC Crashes

Every time I start OBS and Overwatch, the GPU fan speed increases and the CPU load goes above 90%. Sometimes the load is fine (stable 12%) but eventually goes up to 100% and give me a random crash in the middle of the game. This ONLY happens with the game Overwatch, no issues streaming any other game whatsoever. It is really frustrating as I upgraded my PC to be able to stream every game but I am unable to do so because of this..

Any suggestions? I also just upgraded to the latest Graphics Drivers but same issue.

Would appreciate any help.

Thanks a lot.
