Cpu usage dramatically increasing

So I set up an egpu for my Lenovo t430 with a i7-3520M cpu using a NVidia GT 1030. When I first set it up everything was working well but when I went to playing games with it after about an hour or two it would blue screen. When I went to check the cpu levels while playing it in task manager it would constantly be in the 90-100 range even when I closed out of everything else other then the game. When It was idling it was about normal but soon as I would open anything like chrome, discord, ect it would jump up too 100 and then settle back down to around 70 when tabbed out. Ive tried changing power options to default as well as disabling the integrated gpu for nothing to change. Has anyone else had this problem or found a fix to it?

Edit: I found out when it blue screens it has an error of Video_TDR_Failure

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
