Y570 Throttling, Over, Under, or stock clocks

Hi Guys... Weird problem.

I have a Lenovo Y570
Specs:
Windows 7 64 Bit professional
i7 2630QM
GT555M 1GB DDR5 (the 96 core GF108 one @ 753mhz/1570Mhz Memory) With Optimus Intel 3000
DX11.0
Nvidia Driver: 267.43
8GB Ram
500GB 7200RPM HD


History:
I've had to rebuild the machine, and left out most of Lenovo's BloatWare. I've installed their Video Drivers as the 555M is an OEM chip, and optimus works fine.

What appears to be happening, is that the GPU is throttling. Battlefield 3 will be fluid for 2 seconds, and chop for 1 second, to the point where its unplayable.

I used MSI Afterburner to try and underclock the card a bit to see if that was the issues. Note that the temps hover around 81 degrees when playing battlefield 3.



Furmark (Kombuster) does the same thing (Smooth and chop)

what is weird is that the GPU Utilization falls down to 30%.

I read on some other forums that Lenovo slathers on WAY to much thermal paste. So I took my laptop apart and used some AC5 on the CPU/GPU after giving it all a good cleaning. The temps have dropped by 6-10 degrees C, but the issue still remains, (even at 70 degrees instead of 80!)



I've also gotten Throttlestop, But aren't entirely sure how to use it. I've never seen the power usage hit 45 watts ( the tdp for my chip) And the temps are well below 100*C (which is the max for my CPU before it throttles itself.)

I JUST booted up Battlefield 3 and experienced the issue, and Here are the screencaps from Afterburner and Logs of Throttlestop.

Anyone see whats going on? its getting kind of rediculous.




Any help is super appreciated!

Alright, so Small Update - I saw a Youtube video of a guy who goes into Power management, and lowers maximum processor state to 85%. I did this... No more stuttering. The temps are actually HIGHER, because the GPU never throttles, so it makes no sense as to why this is happening.

Any ideas? I'd like to use all 100% Of my CPU.

damn , never came across a issue like this one on my one, because i managed to overclock my cpu to 3.2 Ghz on all four cores stable and the 555m too at 820 on the core and 2140 on the memory yet the gpu temperatures never exceeded 75c and the cpu topped out at 78c
(after thermal rebuild of course :)  ) .. my fps gains in game went running mediun high in bf4 for a avg of 45fps to all ultra except aa for 55fps. i love the power of the cooling system inside this :D  ...though wish i knew how to help, just thought id share this, also, whats your ambient temp? mine is 28c .
