Help! My ryzen 1600 is idling at 95 degrees celcius

As the picture shows, My CPU's idle temperature is being read at 95 degrees. When I run fortnite everything is fine, I cap out at 240 fps with no problem. When I run a more intense game such as Overwatch, my computer will shutoff. No blue screen, or warning. Just shuts off. I imagine it is hitting dangerous temps and shutting itself down. Thermal paste came pre-applied, however I think my next course of action is to get some thermal paste from my local best buy and reapply it to the CPU fan.


If anyone else has any idea's on how to remedy this problem I would really appreciate your input. I am worried running games at such high temps could be causing permanent damage to my CPU.
