It's a matter of fact, not opinion.

I have never had this issue before. This particular game has also caused my notebook to start acting funny and not filter colors properly. This is clearly a much bigger issue.
Then you might have adequate cooling but a defective/overheating video card. The two can be separate issues. But the fact is, the game is NOT overheating or killing your video card. If your video card/GPU overheats when at 100% load, then you have issues not related to the game. Of course you can reduce graphics settings and set vertical sync to reduce load on your GPU to help, but you still have a problem with hardware, and your GPU/video card would fail when stress testing with other software..
