Check bios. Bios contains any/all settings that regulate how the pc is supposed to operate, unless changed by software. If you have AiSuite installed, and turbo disabled in it, the pc will boot up with turbo enabled, then when the OS loads and AiSuite activates, it will disable turbo temporarily, for instance. AiSuite can also temporarily apply a software OC, using Turbo-V, which can change turbo behavior, lock cores, set clock speeds and voltages etc After the boot sequence.

Faster the pc runs, higher the fps. To a point.

Nope. Enabling turbo/enhanced, locking cores etc is normal practice on a K sku cpu. If in any doubt whatsoever, you can visit the ROG forums, there be plenty of stuff regarding your board, OC, the 8086k etc, although by now it'll be older stuff, it's still relevant to that application. There's plenty of stuff to be found on the web, I'd strongly advise that you do any research before attempting any bios changes or Turbo-V activity etc. OC and it's application is and can be advanced reading.

No. 70 is more like a medium load temp. So you have 3 possible issues there. Seriously lousy airflow in the case, the fan/heatsink is clogged with dust, or you are being online crypto mined and don't know it. My guess would be mostly the second and partly the first.

Please run both a Userbenchmark and 3DMark Time Spy and post a link to the results.
