Helios 300 2020 i7 -Massive fps drops

edited March 7 in Predator Laptops
After around 6 months of having this laptop, I've recently begun to get a very big fps drop after around 30 minutes of playing any game. It drops from around 100 fps to around 20-30 fps and stays that way for a few minutes. Pressing the turbo button usually fixes this temporarily. After a while, it comes back. Whenever this happens, there is a big drop in the cpu usage and a gpu usage becomes 100%.gpu core clock also decreases.
I don't think it's thermal throttling as I have been getting the same temps as always and even when I undervolt and limit turbo ratio limit to 30,the problem still persists. 
Can anyone help me fix this?

    Please perform the following steps and check the CPU usage :

Insert a paperclip into the hole and press for four seconds. Let the computer sit for 5 minutes with no power. Reconnect and monitorthe CPU usage.
