Hi! I have an old r9 290 with a stock cooler and it keeps hitting 94c causing the pc to shut down. Are there any budget friendly gpu coolers that will fix this issue?

Have you attempted replacing the thermal paste? On a card of that age the factory paste could be very dried out and be an issue

I would try this before an aftermarket cooler.

Also what case do you have and what fan configuration? Case airflow plays an important role in gpu temps.
