Graphics card overheats on certain games

Hello, I have recently bought a gtx 1060 6gb sc from EVGA and have had an issue with it since. Whenever i play certain games the graphics card goes mental, it gets very loud and very hot and then eventually just crashes, when it crashes the LED's stay on my pc and i have to turn it on and off from the power supply to restart. The main game that seems to make it crash is Fortnite, however it does the same on games such as scrap mechanic and even golf it. However it can run battlefield 1 very smoothly and quietly as well as gta v and other more demanding games. Any ideas would be appreciated thanks :)
