my build is as follows
amd fx 8350
gtx 760
500 psu
8gigs of ram
the case i have has 2 fans right on top and to the side of my processor and iv had this computer since last summer keep in mind. my regular temps for my cpu on a game like bf4 is usually 60 and lately iv been getting up to 76 and when that happens my computer shuts off because its to hot . im going to get water cooling for it next week and i was just wondering if i should just leave it off or can i still use it ? it doesnt turn off when i keep my windows open so i might do that until i get some cooling on it . Basically im asking if its safe to still use it if its doing these things

More about : turning randomly
