Screen flickering when in game after fresh 2nd manjaro install?

I previously installed manjaro KDE on the same laptop and was running games at 50-60fps with very minor lag spikes. Almost no screen tearing. I reinstalled it from the same usb stick and now in game the screen flickers black and is barely able to run at 50fps, it now constantly screen tears (im only playing albion online, and cs:go/source). The cpu also seems to heat up more because it kicks into medium speed alot now. The laptop is only a couple weeks old. Im running an intel i7 12700H with XE graphics.
