It's not right the card is crashing the PC due to the overheating. The throttling should be as far as it goes.

I'd check the ventilation in your case. Maybe you have all coolers blowing out instead of some in and some out or something. Check the temp in idle and load for the CPU as well. It shouldn't be above 40 when you casually browse. Ideally - under 30. GPU might be hotter, depending on your CPU cooler, but still under 40.

It's possible to reapply the thermal paste on the GPU, but likely one needs to go for water cooling, especially if the case is not well designed for air circulation.

Finally, if you use overclock - disable it. The increase in heat is far larger than increase in performance.
