Power settings have 2 options on windows 10 Balanced or High Performance, your 120GB SSD is underperforming massively so if that's got Win10 on I'd suggest cloning it to your M.2 and if fortnite is on the HDD install that on the M.2 aswell. Your memory is in the 9th percentile so something may be wrong with that try remove all but one stick and then running on that let us know how that goes.

you gotta check your nvidia control panel , maybe your fps is capped there somehow ? i don't know where it is but in AMD crimson it's more straightforward

Make sure your power settings are on performance and turn your settings up you're wasting all that power for nothing, you should have around 180 fps on max at 1080p. What monitor do you have?

Your Kingston hard drive is part of the problem unless you know for sure you are using it just for media storage. If you have Windows installed on it or Fortnite, or even the Epic Games Launcher, that could be a bottleneck.
Also am I reading right, You have a 60-79hz display but want much higher fps than your monitor can display?
It's a nice great build btw. I'd put the Kingston in another system or sell it if I were you though.
