pc crash while gaming

Hello everyone,

since some time I've had issues with games that makes my pc crash, no crash report just a reboot.
This mostly happens after 30 seconds on ultra graphics or like 2 minutes on low graphics.
This only happens to some games, such as elder scrolls online, skyrim, borderlands and some others. Note: I installed enbboost for skyrim and adjusted my vid memory to be allocated to the game to 3 gig and I didn't have any crashes anymore. I also don't have problems with games such as bf 4, thief ect on ultra 60 fps.


Drivers are updated and I've had this problem over a lot of different versions of the catalyst software,so can't be a driver issue. All other driversand bios are also fully updated.
My HDD is still in good shape.
my gpu is HD7950 XFX DD
and a i5 3570k on clock speed
I have a PSU with enough wattage and it's from corsair so I don't think that'd be a problem.
update: ESO is fully playable on minimum settings, this looks terrible but it's playable. From low to ultra it keeps crashing after some time.

Note: my temps on gpu and cpu before the crash are not high. Under high load it's on about 50-60 degrees.

What can I do to fix this?
Thanks in advance

    it might be due to overheating. ensure that there is enough air flow in and out of the cabinet and there is no air pressure build-up inside the case.

    also ensure that no walls or covers are blocking the entry or exit of air.
    if problem persists then I recommend you to buy more coolers for your pc.
