PC Instantly Turns off randomly - Possibly CPU

Hi there I am having very frequent instant shut downs when i'm playing games (especially battlefield 4), as if the pc loses power. I am guessing its something to do with my CPU because my CPU temperatures vary from 75-85 degrees just seconds before the PC turns itself off. I have no reason why the cpu should be reaching those sort of temps. anyway i have a decent heat sink (a30 freezer) with decent thermal paste that was only installed no more than 2 months ago. The strange thing is though straight after my computer has turned off i check inside the case and feel the heat sink and it's literally a warmish temperature, i'd say about 40-50 degrees, maybe i have a faulty temp. sensor? my gpu temps are fine (never go above 70)
Also my pc turned off into a minute of a small prime 95 test

Hardware:

FX-8350
XFX 7870 DD
750W Cooler Master Bronze (definately can't be my psu)
M5A99X REV 2.0

I can post one of the many logs:

    I second that. It sounds like the PSU to me, hence why it cuts out under load, like gaming or stress testing. As for those CPU temperatures, while they're not great, they're safe.
  3. Ok after reinstalling my heatsink which all the screws we're loose, my cpu never goes above 50 degrees and I now gave very smooth gameplay, most importantly after an hour of bf4 it hasn't cut out once. I'll run a stress test tomorrow how long for though 2-3 hours?

    thats alot better i wouldnt worry about cutting out the motherboard shuts off when cpu gets to hot to prevent damage does your cooler use mx2 or mx4 paste as i forget what the a30 use but mx4 paste is much better
  5. in the motherboard bios you can change the shutdown temp, or turn it off. but sounds like youve solved it.
