Question Help - CPU seems to be causing lag in games (I think) and I'm not sure why

For weeks I've been trying to find out why my pc randomly experiences FPS drops after gaming for 20-30 mins. I downloaded NZXT CAM to check my temps and I believe my CPU is overheating. It has a base temp of 60-65 when browsing and jumps up 85+ when gaming. I also discovered its permanently using 3890mhz as a frequency while its stock frequency is 2300. Could this be causing the problem? I have a core i5 8300h cpu and a gtx 1060 gpu. Any advice would be greatly appreciate.

Edit: It might also be important to say that it randomly jumps past 70 when browsing or doing normal tasks.
