Howdy,

Question is why is your CPU going to 64C and how do you know that is the temp?

There is a setting maybe in Bios that is set that will turn off the PC and a certain temp.

Is this a new PC and who build it?

Understood....

Tell us more about the PC laptop or desktop

Try this link to download a small program from this site that will tell you most of the specs we need

TSG System Information Utility

Copy and paste the results from this program in your next post


Also

Download and install hwmonitor
and see what the temps etc are. Download the 1.19 setup, english on the right-hand side.
....take a reading when not running the game or programs CPU(core) and GPU Video card and post them. (Just a screenshot of results is fine)

My guess is that the PC heatsink and inside the PC has dust buildup. I would suggest cleaning the Heatsink of dust and the PC.

Also check all fans are clean and running.

Not sure what cooling system is on the CPU but it may need the thermal paste replacing.

OK...then the Thermal paste on the Heatsink may have dried out and needs replacing. not a big job and Arctic Silver paste is cheap and very good. I would get on with that as running the CPU that warm for is not good for it.

i appreciate all the help
but at idle it runs around 30c and under load sometimes it stays around 58 and on some other games it creeps to 64 and shuts down

Understand.....

Like I said check the thermal paste on CPU heatsink, replace the paste and then check the temps.
