AMD Phenom II X4 965 FPS Spikes when at 100%

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4ghz
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 750ti FTW Edition


My CPU seems to make all my games drop fps every few seconds and it's really annoying


This only occurs when the processor is performing at 3.4ghz. I can fix the drops if I go into Power Settings (I'm on the high performance power plan) and set the maximum performance percentage to 99% or under, but then the processor performs at 2.7ghz and then my GPU can't perform at its optimal speed, and my games run worse than they could be running. It's mostly an issue for CS:GO. I can handle CS no problem at 60fps but I have a 144hz monitor and I want it to perform at an fps higher then 144, but it's usually at the 100 mark in the game. Any help would be appreciated!
