Memory or overheating. Run memtest86 to test memory and run speedfan while playing games to monitor temps.

Monitor your temps while playing the game that shuts down your computer. How high does the cpu and gpu temp get?
Jan 16, 2013, 7:16 PM
cpu is like 45 and gpu is in the 40's. and like benchmarking the gpu will make it freeze also
