i7-4700MQ CPU 2.40GHz running at 798MHz (Yes, below 1 GHz!)

My Lenovo Y410P laptop sometimes run increadibly slow for a few seconds to a few minutes.

Originally I thought it has something too do with the shitty nvidia drivers. Today however, I managed to figure out that the CPU is being severely under-clocked.

Should I go get my laptop physically cleaned and replace the thermal compounds?

Temperatures with just Chrome open with few tabs:

Adapter: ACPI interface
temp1:         +0.0°C  (crit = +127.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Package id 0:  +65.0°C  (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 0:        +63.0°C  (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1:        +64.0°C  (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 2:        +61.0°C  (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 3:        +65.0°C  (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

If your cpu governor is in powesave, then it's normal to be under-clock when the cpu is not much needed. Try setting the cpu governor to performance to see if it changes.
Also you can install i7z to have another reading on temperature or if it matches the acpi one.
