Computer Crashes when gaming and GPU stress test! Help!


I am having trouble with my computer atm. I am using my computer avg 4-6 hours a day and mainly for playing video games. I normally have no trouble what so ever, and would really like some help from you guys.
Yesterday during my gaming my computer started "grey-screening" all of a sudden even with no extreme GPU reliant gameplay. So basically my monitor turns grey, but I can hear my sounds. I have to force shutdown the computer and reboot. I started reading some forum threads online and tried GPU stress testing. After using Furmark and 3DMark I experienced that in both programs running either benchmark og simple stress test, my computer will crash after 1,5-2 minutes. At first I was worried it was the heat, but it usually crashes at 55-60 degrees.

Things I have tried:
Cleaning the insides of my computer, both GPU, CPU and PSU.
Deleting and/or updating/reinstalling graphic driver.
