GPU and CPU utilization not 100%

My newly built PC has issues with some games.
My GPU never reaches 100% and my CPU neither. I'm taking Assasin's Creed Origins as example. I sometimes (depending on the place) get only 40-50 FPS. This shouldn't be the case with my setup. The GPU is only utilized around 60% at 1080p high. The CPU is also around 50-60% utilization. Some CPU cores rarely go over 60% but not a single CPU core exceeds 80%. The weird thing is that I can set my res to 4K (3840x2160) and the frame difference is barey there. Fortnite is my seconds example. I get much better FPS with this, but my frames are dropping quite often. Most of the time I stay at 110-144 FPS but the frames sometimes drop down to 50 FPS sometimes. This is really annoying and this shouldn't be the case with my hardware, plus it's not using 100% of the GPU or CPU. No frame caps or V-Sync. Chipset and GPU drivers are installed and up to date.
