Computer turning off when I attempt to play a game.

Recently I just bought/built a brand new gaming PC. Everything was going fine, until I went to go play Borderlands 2. After about five minutes of play time my computer randomly shut off and restarted. I am not sure what is going on. Thing is I can play Minecraft just fine and nothing ever happens.

PC Specs:
Intel Core i7 3770k Ivy Bridge Quad Core Processor @3.5ghz (LGA 1155 socket)
ASUS SaberTooth Z77 Motherboard
EVGA GeForce GTX 670 Graphics Card
Corsair H60 Liquid CPU coolier
Rosewill Xtreme Series RX850-S-B 850W Power Supply
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin (RAM)

  1. On the saber tooth use te USB flashback to put the newest bios code for nvidia bug fixes on your mb. In the bios turn on xmp profile and settle mb seed to standard. The asus overlock can cause issue. Use msi afterburner to change the gpu fan profile so it spins up to max speed under load. Use hardware monitore and load test your system to see if the CPU and gpu are staying cool. The last piece is the power supply not holding under load.
