Will undervolting my 2080Ti help with my CPU bottleneck? i7-5820K

I have an i7-5820k and was wondering if lowering the power limit of my 2080ti will help smooth some of the frames or at least decrease the CPU bottleneck I have?

Currently, the CPU is overclocked to 4.5Ghz @ 1.28v running about 77c under load. I’ve tried disabling hyperthreading, lowering voltages of both CPU and GPU, changing resolution/game fidelity settings, adjusting monitor refresh rates, enabling GSync/vsync options etc.

Can’t seem to get stable frames no matter what I do. In every title I play (Fortnite, PUBG, Gears4, even single player titles like Borderlands 1 and 2), frames drop every few seconds to a noticable degree, it’s like screen tearing in a sense of both movement/visuals. Any help of the matter would gladly be appreciated or by pointing me in right direction via some already posted articles or tutorials.
