PC struggling with music production more then it should

Hey everyone, My PC is struggling with music production way more then it should. I'll run FL studio with a decent amount of plugins and tracks and it will overload like crazy. Checking the task manager while running a project, the CPU stays at a consistent 40-58% utilization while the memory stays at 12.8/16 GB. However within FL studio, the "CPU Load" is extremely high and overloads often. Here at examples: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ew1SN5SbURBYzQFC8 https://photos.app.goo.gl/CxvgGAAsWdH4iKzw6

Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? I understand that music production is costly but I feel like a computer with these specs should be doing much better: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/G6zMnQ

Any help would be super super helpful!

I know this is not a direct solution, but have you tried running a few benchmarks to see if any of your main components are underperforming?
