Overheating GPU, can I fix this anyway ?

Discussion: Overheating GPU, can I fix this anyway ?

Hi, I have this problem where anytime I launch any "demanding" game and start a match or a battle, the GPU temperature instantly goes to 90 degrees Celsius or more, the game crashes, the screen goes black, the sound lags, and the fans go on maximum, so I have to turn the power button off and back on if I want to reboot the PC. For example: Whenever I enter a battle in Total War: Warhammer, the crash and the rest happens after cca. 15 seconds. Or even just games like CS:GO that are not that demanding on hardware, it crashes every 10 mins in-game. This started happening about 6 months ago, then it was working fine for a while after I re-pasted the GPU, but now it's happening again. So my question is: Is there any way to fix this, or do I have to buy a new GPU ? Thanks in advance
