Just recently installed a temp tracker and found out it's been running 80 to 100 degrees Celsius while gaming.
Turned performance plan to balanced.

100 degrees is the maximum it can reach before clocking down to keep safe,so either your motherboard is pumping too much power into your CPU to boost it as high as possible (go into bios and put everything on default and check with websites if your mobo is using too much power) or your cooling needs some cleaning or maybe even fixing/replacing.
