I would suggest contacting your hardware manufacturer.
The cooling system in your laptop sounds inadequate - it may need a

A laptop should not run so hot that it crashes.
It also should have sensors that throttle it down when it reaches a
certain temp (and I believe you can configure cpuspeed to do that as

If you can, try to replicate the issue in Windows. While no one should
have to run windows to get a hardware manufacturer to acknowledge a
problem, it seems too often be easier to do so - as they often will look
