How to fix GIGABYTE R9 390 G1 Overheating Issue?

I've always had some issues with this build, but I never understood R9 390 overheating. I'm forced to run any game in Fullscreen with FRTC limit to 60 and Power Efficiency turned on. Tried different settings, like changing Power Limit or the Global Settings, but even in low demanding games with Low Preset, if I turn off FRTC/VSYNC/Power Efficiency or change the resolution to Borderless, GPU temperature starts to go up paired with the fan noise. I can run the majority of the recent games, except open world type of, with a solid 60fps, but in most cases I can't play them, even with FRTC/Power Efficiency turned on in Fullscreen, because I have good FPS, but awful temperatures and fan noise. This all happened with stock settings, the settings that I'm currently using helped a little but don't fix the issue. Sorry, for my english.
