Lower FPS and heating

HP Recommended
HP OMEN 15 dc-0008nm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi. I struggling with playing games, specifically CS:GO. My laptop is in Performance mode and everything  (windows, graphic drivers etc.) is up to date. 
First, it starts to overheat when I play games , and temperatures going about 90-100'C.  But  as I read on forums, it is normally for my and for gaming laptops. 
When the temperature raise, FPS gets down. Especially in CS:GO, on start of game, it is about 250+, and when CPU and GPU temp raise, it goes to 120-150 and randomly on 20-50 which makes playing not possible.

I have Intel® Core™ i7-8750H Hexa Core Processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 max-q, and i think i should play even CS:GO on high config without struggles. 

It happens since i bought it (near 1 year ago) until today. 

What I did?
So i find on internet to change the graphic card that rendering game (from integrated on NVIDIA) and it didn't help. I didn't find the solution in this community, so i wrote this question. I'm frustrated that i spent a lot money so i can play any game on high config, and i can't play even CS:GO on lower conf than high. Please, help me! Thank you!

@petarllic there are many ways to increase FPS and system performance:

  • Update the BIOS.

    For desktop PCs, go to HP Desktop PCs - Updating the BIOS.

    For notebook PCs, go to HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS

  • Update the graphics driver.

    Go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, enter your PC model, then select the driver for your graphics card.

  • Most games allow you to change the graphics settings. Using a lower graphic quality often improves FPS.

  • Close any applications or programs that are not being used.

  • Turn on Game Mode. Game Mode is a new feature in Windows 10 Creators Update that improves gaming performance by limiting background processes and programs from using system resources while a game is running.

    1. Press the Windows key and G to open the Game bar.

    2. In the game bar, click Settings.

    3. Click the check box next to the game title to enable Game Mode for that game.

      Plug notebook PCs into an AC adapter to give the graphics card more power.
