          That's expected behaviour as you are running a power virus application, try testing 3DMark instead to monitor GPU usage.


          As for the FPS drops in Dota 2, are your Motherboard VRMS overheating?


          You can monitor the CPU Package temperature with HWINFO64. If you're below 64c, you should be okay.
