Hi guys, my laptop has an Intel i7-8750H CPU and everything was fine until I noticed sudden FPS drops when in crowded areas in BF1 maps. I thought hey, maybe it's just temporary but nah. I didn't know where to look at so I did a few things... I reapplied the thermal paste, I thought the HDMI I am using to connect the laptop to a monitor was broken, but I don't know if that can be the cause of a problem like this but today I noticed something. When I am in the game, the CPU usage is around 50% AND the maximum frequency displayed in Resource Monitor is constantly at 104-105%. That means the CPU is not using Turbo boost capabilities for some reason so this means my GHz is constantly around 2.35. Funny enough, when I close the game or shortcut to desktop when I play, the frequency jumps back and forth and gets over that 2.35.

Do you have any idea what it may be? I'm honestly getting really irritated by this laptop, since I bought it it's been problem problem problem.
