TUF Gaming laptop heats up on its own

I am well aware that a gaming laptop can heat up pretty easily and I don't mind it when I'm gaming, I use headphones to game anyway. However, it still can be quiet when idle or when browsing the web or doing office work. I'm a teacher a I bought myself the Asus TUF Gaming F17 FX706LI with following specs:

 

CPU: i5-10300H

GPU: GTX 1650Ti Mobile

RAM: 16 Gb 2933 Mhz

 

It is capable of both gaming and working. Still, I need to control the CPU autoovercloking so it doesn't heat up in school, making noise. I found an instruction on YT and followed it. I used power options in control panel and changed the CPU power limit to 99% so it couldn't get any more power to overclock itself. Seems easy, it worked for almost half a year, and then Armoury Crate had an update. AC has total control over the system and gets the CPU its 100% anyway. I selected the Windows mode in AC so it used the settings I had settled. However I still saw the CPU overclock to almost double its GHz (from 2,50 Ghz to 4,25 Ghz). I tried uninstalling it however the process was not complete, it was stopped by a blank error. After that I cannot uninstall AC and cannot get into it to change anything. The total storage wipe and Windows reinstallation didn't help. The laptop can still be at 99% CPU limit and climb up to 80 degrees at idle. There's no dust inside, I keep it clean. The laptop also started acting strange. It doesn't heat up for as long as the Task Manager is opened. Then after a minute it closes on its own and the laptop gets back to making noise. What should I do?

It helped once or twice before the AC went insane

then dont use a broken piece of software that was designed to make your pc take flight so that it edges out the competition by 2%, and selling you some partner software in the process.

I use debloated windows images, without any unnecessary apps, including Windows Defender. This image works just fine at my PC, while the laptop struggles
