Need to down clock GPU for stability

Hi,

 

Just brought a R9 280x second hand recently. It was working fine initially before I turn game setting to MAX. Now, I have to down clock the GPU to 820 (from 1070) to prevent it from restarting the PC. I have a 750 watt PSU (with a AMD FX4100 @ 4.2 GHz on air). That should be enough, right? I have tried turning the fan to 100% but no joy. Should I try re-seating the heat pipes with new paste? Or do I just have a bad card

 

Thanks.
