Question CPU Temp Limit

Hi, while gaming there seems to be a temperature limit on my CPU as once it hits about 66-68 degrees celcius, the game stutters and the cpu usage drops to below 40% and the fps drops with it for about a second or two. I was wondering if there was a limit on the maximum temperature that is causing this and if anyone knew of a way to stop this happening.

When your CPU gets warm the game FPS will still be fine something is going on with your system. what are your system specs and how much RAM do you have and are you using a SSD ?
