Gpu temps is reaching 83°
Cpu around 60 ~ 78°
I got a 120mm simole water cooler
My bios is in The lates update
It may be some option in the BIOS. Perhaps if you can get the clock up to around 4.2 or 4.4 GHz all the time without downward fluctuations things will be different. Make sure though not to touch the voltage or anything you do not understand because there is a great possibility you may burn out and break the machine.

These are my two cents. The last time I've done anything serious was when I overclocked my Core i7-3770K to 5 GHz (around 2013-2014). There were many options in the BIOS that needed changing and it was a huge investment in time and immersion in particular aspects. I kinda hate myself for not making a video of how I managed to get the processor to such speed as many of the options I've changed (for example - for stable voltage) could have been very helpful for other people and in solving different problems.

So as I am pretty out of date I can only give you an outline and no viable explanation or really viable advice.
