Question CPU Usage 100% when playing the original games (STEAM)

Hello guys. Today i noticed something strange.
I recently overclocked my CPU, so i frequently check my CPU temps, just to be sure that everything is ok.
I was playing Exoddus(on steam), when i tabbed out. I checked hwmonitor and i saw that my CPU usage was 90-100% when i was playing the game.
After some more checking i am now sure that both of the original games push my CPU so hard for some reason. Anyone else experience something like this?
My Cpu is a Xeon X5460 OC'ed at 4Ghz(On stock clocks, this xeon is a bit faster than a C2Q Q9650). And no, i am not running a server. There is a mod to run s771 CPU on s775 boards.
Thanks in advance

Yeah, it sometimes helps with other compatibility issues, too. Unfortunately, it didn't help with yours.

AO/AE are DOS-era games, it's really weird that they use up all your CPU capabilities. Are you absolutely sure that doesn't happen with any other game? Or that your antivirus isn't interfering?
