While playing games i seem to get random fps drops as if my monitor turns itself to 60hz for a minute then goes back to 240hz for a minute, no stuttering just really weird frame rate issues and i cant pin point what could be wrong.
I have tried to install all drivers and update the bios all seem to do nothing. Recent purchased the computer from cyberpower so not much memory being used on either the HDD or SSD. could really do with some help thank you.
When looking at msi afterburner my gpu is at 100% but when looking at task manager for my cpu its only at max 20%.

So after playing i noticed it stays at a comftable 120 fps then a tiny stutter happens and it drops to around 50/60 then about a minute later another tiny stutter happens and it goes back up to 120+
 
Run HWmonitor.
It will record current, min and max temperatures.
If you ever see 100c. max, then it suggests that you throttled.
That is likely because your cpu cooler was not quite good enough.

Be careful how you interpret task manager cpu utilizations.
Windows will spread the activity of a single thread over all available threads.
So, if you had a game that was single threaded and cpu bound, it would show up on a quad core processor as 25%
utilization across all 4 threads.
leading you to think your bottleneck was elsewhere.
