Computer crashing during games

Alright, here is my setup:
-AMD FX 8350 Stock
-Saphire 7850 1GB OC Edition
-ASUS M5A97 Mobo
-8GB RAM
-XFX 550 PSU
-CPU FAN is the Hyper Evo 212 (i don't remember) - If I remember correctly it did not fit 100% so its kinda jerry rigged on.
*Note* I also have the side of my computer open and put a desk fan on it so that it gets more air flow

The problem:
I will be doing something at not even Maxish load, for instance just now I loaded CS:GO and within 10 Minutes I crashed, I crash during Starcraft 2, I crash in League of Legends, I crash in Minecraft, I crash in everything... It really sucks to be honest.
Their is no crash screen. it just turns off, black, not even a shutdown screen, nothing, just off.

The Idea:
This is where I need help, I am not sure if the CPU is getting too hot,
or if the Graphics card is getting too hot.
I also thought it might be my PSU being pushed to Voltage,
Whatever it is I am sure more air flow wont hurt, lol.

I wasn't sure where to place this so its in CPU !
If you can help, thank you very much!

    That was 1 of my fears... you dont think maybe the CPU or GPU is over heating?

    That depends, it could also be one of those too. You will have to check...
    Try playing on windowed mode with the temperatures up on the side

    CPU?
    And is it max when it crashes and is it constant?
    Only when your gaming?
    Is it fine when you are browsing etc.?
  6. if it runs stresstests without crashing then it might be drivers/corruption..
    Also are you overclocking?
