Hello. My problem is that when im gaming, even a game which uses 40% of my gpu, for example: Stick fight the game my gpus temperature slowly grows to 96 celsius and stops there. While idle my temperature is about 33ish. I've tried blowing the dust, opening the sidepanel and i have tried more aggresive fan curve on msi afterburner.
My specs are: Intel i5-7400, 8 gigs of ddr4, a prebuilt lenovo motherboard (literally no application knows its name) and a gtx 1060 3gb (1 fan). It is a prebuilt lenovo y520 tower pc bought brand new.

This also affects my frames very much since it starts throttling about when it hits 94 degrees. My other parts are cool: cpu is under load max 55 degrees idle 32.
Thanks in advance!

Either:
Your GPU fan is not working or spinning VERY slowly
Your thermal past on the card was not applied correctly and has worn out by now
Your airflow in the case is poor and needs to be fixed.

The airflow is good i think, gpu fan is at full speed im not sure if it functions properly tho, and i have not changed the thermal paste and i will probably do that.
