Ridiculous tearing and stutter in recording on laptop

Firstly, stuttering is the most obvious when looking at the clips. When the clip stutters it actually shows older frames instead of just hanging on a frame.

Secondly, the tearing is next level, the video tears in weird clumps of pixels instead of a distinct line and is very 2-dimentional. A common kind of tearing is this Z-shaped mark that you can see here:
I don't have these problems using Nvidia's GFE but I was hoping to use OBS for capturing since it doesn't need to detect a game to record anything. My laptop is an MSI GF75 Thin 9SD with a GTX 1660Ti (not Max-Q) and an i7-9750H.

Here is a capture using GeForce experience: https://streamable.com/eubhbl

Here is a capture using my old settings in OBS Studio: https://streamable.com/s9ffrq
