My FPS constantly going back and forth no matter what game I play

15 pts.
No matter what game I play, after about 5 minutes of playing, my frames go back and forth between 20 to 140. I already made sure all my drivers were updated, I tried malware cleaning and other stuff along those lines, I tried editing my in game settings. Whenever I check my ROG Gaming Center console - my CPU says ~3900 MHz, temp at 43 degrees C, and 2652 MHz of memory. My GPU says 139 Hz, 41 degrees C, and 405 MHz of memory. HDD is always around 24% with 257/1049 GB. RAM is always around 16% 2.5/15.9 GB. None of my "techy" friends know the solution.
Specs are:
Computer: ASUS GU501GM
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8750H CPU @ 2.2 GHz
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GDDR5 @ 6.0 GB (192 bit).
Memory: 16384 MB, DDR4-2666 / PC4-21300 (1333.3 MHz), 1x16 GB
Not too much of a computer guy, just looking to get it fixed so I can play.

Check to see what you have running in the background. There may be some updates taking place, like a Windows update, or a virus scan. I know this happens to me when gaming. I go into task manager and disable the apps I know I wont need running. I also know some firewall and AV apps have a game mode which temporarily disable them so the game lag drops and the frame rates go up a bit. You video card specs seems fine. Better than mine and I get a consistent 60 FPS playing games like Skiyrim, L4D, Farcry 3 and Fallout New Vegas.

    Try to increase the graphics memory if possible. Also what OS is there? Sometimes. OS matching is necessary rather it is not forced by user.

    No it's none of those. It's for sure my gpu. Every time the gpu's MHz drops is when my fps drops as well.

    I have not done it personally but there if you have techie friends ask them if they have ever overclocked a CPU. You might get some added performance. Last question, did you build this system yourself or was it pre-configured from a vendor? Sometimes the one you build yourself can have issue with compatibility of components if you do not research it thoroughly beforehand.

    Moreover, if the OS is Windows based, it is necessary to make the system up to date. Please check Windows Update which can help a lot. Also hardware update is necessary.
