✔ Best Answer
plug in the power and then try the following:

look for edit power plan in the taskbar --> search bar

change advanced power settings
look for processor power management --> maximum processor state --> set it to 100%
also make sure system cooling policy is set to Active, not Passive

i5-6600K[delid]@4.8GHz/4.4GHz@1.424v LLC=6 | 2x4GB Crucial-DDR4-2133CL15@14-14-14-30 1T 2800MHz@1.37v

Also manage your start up programs, it is possible that some will start with Windows but are managed while on battery to improve run time but not when on AC power. Uninstall programs that are not used including some (many) that came factory installed. Google any you are not sure of or ask here. Leave anything from Microsoft unless you are sure about it and from Intel as well. You can open settings on programs you keep and set them to NOT begin with Windows. You can also use the Start Up Programs feature on CCleaner to manage your start up programs on the ones you keep and use sometimes. It is not necessary for most of them to start with Windows.
Also let us know what antivirus program you use, many like Norton and McAfee are system hogs and an opportunity like plugging in would suddenly make it check for updates, definitions, and begin scans.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
