After a few hours of playing Overwatch, my laptop shuts down.

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 Recently, I did some changes to my computer to reduce the frequent FPS drop I had before : I changed some things in Nvidia Control Panel,  Overwatch video settings and in BIOS config. Those things I changed were nothing, just disabling VSync and reducing graphics quality to get better performance. 


Since I did all that, no FPS drop during my games but now, after around 2 hours of gaming, the audio is turning noisy and bad, it's like something is blocking it and FPS drops start to occur. Then, after 10 mins of all that, my laptop shuts down. When I turn it back on, everything is alright.


I noticed something about that : when the FPS drops start to occur, the CPU temperature hits 97°C.


I've updated my BIOS and graphics drivers, reseted all settings I used to change, closed all my apps while I was playing, did every single HP Hardware Tests and I also cleaned my computer's fans with a toothbrush but nothing happens. 


I have a Geforce GTX 1050 Ti and an Intel Core i7 8750H.


Thank you for your help.
