Rx 6600xt High Junction Temperature and Hard Pc Crash

Hi, so I got a new Red Devil 6600xt back in November, and at first it was fine, but now when playing games it will just completely turn off my pc in the middle of a game (Red Dead 2 and Crusader Kings 3 for example).  It's been going on for some time now, but I have no idea what it can be, I've throttled the fans, rolled back drivers, it seems to work well with Fumark, no idea.  The card also has junction temperatures regularly hitting and then staying at 110-116C, and upon bootup the screen will flicker for a few seconds everything else in my pc is pretty new

I also bought the psu at the same time as the gpu, everything else is less then a year old, any thoughts on what the problem could be?  I'm about to go back to Microcenter soon to either exchange or upgrade to a 6700xt if I can't find a solution, thanks for your help.
