VGA Overheating(I think)

Hi guys!
I have the problem of an overheating cpu.
I have disabled automatic restarts but it still just logs off by itself and shuts down without the blue screen.
I have speed fan as well and my temp 1 shoots up to 50-60c. After 50 a fire thing comes up, doesn't matter what i'm doing. I think it's VGA.
I have cleaned out my cpu (Compressed air) and checked all of my fans as well. I have installed a new a fan for the main board but the graphic's card's fan still the original.
At start up it makes a weird fan-grinding (don't know which fan) noise and then resumes as normal but the card still gets really hot.

My colors on my screen start to fade in and out.
I can only watch 5mins of a movie or a clip on youtube before it shuts off.
I at times will leave it idle and come back to it after 2 hrs to find it shut off as well.
I can be checking e-mails or writing an essay and it shuts down by it self.
I'm out of ideas. Hopefully you skilled and educated individuals can help me out please.

Thank you for you time and support.
