Pc randomly shutting down 10 minutes into playing high end games

Specs

Processor AMD A10-5800K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics
Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
PSU Thermaltake TR2 600W
MBO Gigabyte F2A85XM-D3H


I just replaced the PSU last week thinking it wasnt giving the GPU enough power and causing the system to shut down but the problem still happened. someone suggested to download HWMonitor
and check temps, Heres a pastebin of the monitoring data if that helps along with a screenshot

  1. Thermaltake TR2 is a pretty crappy PSU though...
  2. 100 degrees on your cpu, i guess this is why it shuts down, it gets way to hot and shuts down to protect the chip, how much did you OC and what cpu cooler do you have?

    it seems to always show 100 i'm using the stock settings and and everything is stock

    100 degrees at stock? wow, how is your airflow in case? because you need to get rid of some of the heat at 100 degrees your chip is dying rapidly, almost melting

    The airflow seems fine I have 2 fans and the case has a side vent right above the CPU blowing the hot air out, i've even tried leaving the side cover off and it doesn't seem to change anything

    looked a bit more into your chip and its TJ Max is 74C and you are way above that and it should have shut down way before reaching 100C, if those temps are correct then you are damaging your computer, and you might want to look into a new cpu as soon as possible.

    doesnt that core voltage seem kind of high also? how could i change that? i read somewhere that it should be at 1.35 but mine is much higher

    Yes 1,350, 1375 and 1.456 is very high for stock settings, you can adjust it in bios

    Edit: okay you can't change voltage apparentely on this mobo, the problem lies with your mobo http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php?topic=11607.0 and i am afraid there's nothing you can do about it other than getting a new mobo
