    Sounds like a heat related issue. Gaming is what's going to stress the components and start ramping things up. When just browsing in windows 10 it doesn't require the power. When your gaming it need to pull in more juice.

    Couple of things to take note:

    • Check your power supply and make sure it can supply enough power to your new hardware.
    • Check your cables in side and make sure their all connected properly.
    • Blow out any dust that has accumulated.
