Hi all friends! I have some issues with my MSI GE73 RGB 8RF. Let me explain to you. My laptop spec is as follow.

CPU i7 8750H, RAM 16GB DDR4, GPU Nvidia GTX1070 (Full Powered) 8GB DDR5
OS - Windows 11 Version 21H2 (OS Build 22000.194)

I undervolted laptop with parameters as attached photos. When I play several games with laptop, it always hits 97C and I also get FPS drops in games. Sometimes in game FPS dropped to 35FPS even with max fan speed 7500 rpm. Seems that it's throttling itself. Even in idle state, temps are around 50C~60C. Is it normal? Room temp is 21C. Can you point out what causes this issues? I haven't open laptop chassis to replace thermal paste since I bought it in 2019 Jan 23rd. Is it time to replace thermals paste? I believe that there will be a lot of dust in fan and radiator. Beside this issues, I would like to know that is there any parameter issues with throttlestop? I would be happy if I get some advises to improve thermal vs performance scenario. I also attach GPU enabled log file and I logged it while I playing Days Gone in 1080P High setting for around 15mins. Can you suggest any optimal setting? Thanks in advance.
