Lower fps than expected in all games

So ive been facing this problem now and then for about a year now where i get lower fps in games than i should be getting in games such as wolfenstein the old blood far cry 4 and battlefield 4.
Ive been looking through forums for a long time and ive checked my drivers are up to date and im definitely not using the motherboard gpu.
Also overclocking my gpu makes literally 0 difference ive done +153 mhz core clock boost and +640 mhz memory clock boost and it makes 0 difference in gaming for some reason.
in games like wolfenstein: the old blood i get less than 30 fps on medium settings when tests show i should be getting 60+ on ultra.
in bf4 i get less than 60 on ultra when its expected to get around 120-180 with the same setup.
i dont know what the problem could be ive tried everything ive seen so far that helped people fix the same issue.
ive tried turning off vsync and triple buffering and messing around in the nvidia control panel and i always update my drivers. my gpu doesnt overheat neither does my cpu but my gpu usage ison 100% when playing wolfenstein and getting low fps. my cpu goes about 60% and my ram usage is on about 50%.
i have no idea what the problem could be anymore but it is really annoying.
it doesnt occur in every game i can run crysis 3 on ultra at 60+ fps and wolfenstein the new colossus on ultra 60 fps. but in some other games i get really low fps.
and it also bothers me that overclocking my gpu makes no difference for some reason.
I5 6500
gtx 1060 6gb
8gb ddr4 ram 2100mhz
some cheap gigabyte motherboard

More about lower fps expected games
  1. First thing I'd do is run a non game benchmark or two, such as 3dmark, to make sure the computer is functioning normally. The problem with using games for this purpose is that game performance can be affected by many things. In your case, some games work well, some don't. That only proves the point.

    Also, overclocking won't fix problems in performance. Overclocking can be a way to squeeze a bit of extra performance from a system that is already working well.
