I can't seem to find a V-Sync option.
I'm pretty sure its turned off by default, maybe enabling it will help balance out your fps. Go into my documents, then my games, then find skyrim when you open the folder you should see something called SkrimPrefs.ini or just SkyrimPrefs. Open that, then use ctrl+f to search for ipresentinterval usually just searching present will pull it up, if its set to iPresentinterval=0 its disabled =1 means enabled, change it to that. If it doesn't pull up iPresentInterval at all (which is pretty possible) just add iPresentInterval=1 to the bottom of the section labeled [Display]. See if that helps anything.
