Frame Drops and Overheat on PC

I'm having a really bad issue with Dead By Daylight overheating my graphics driver above 80 degrees Celsius. The frames can drop down to 20 FPS during a match. I also have frames uncapped in Dead By Daylight, but am considering capping them again if this is the problem. This is only occurring with Dead By Daylight and I've tested out other games and there's no problem there. It seems to occur randomly and only during matches. Sometimes when in a chase, sometimes when on a gen and a survivor gets hooked. Not sure if the hook blip animation is also hurting the GPU. This problem began today out of nowhere and it happens during every single match.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8700 CPU @ 3.20GHz (12 CPUs), ~3.2GHz

Memory: 16384MB RAM

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
