    I have had this issue for a few months, basically, when playing certain games (Rainbow Six Siege, Counter Strike: Global Offensive), my PC will restart by itself after about 10-15 minutes gameplay. I don't understand why. My PC is around 4 years old but it works fine. I got it fixed after a fan and motherboard issue 6 months ago, I did get the fan upgraded, and my temperatures look fine (Max 46 Celsius, Average 31 Celsius). I dont have the issue when browsing or playing other games such
    as Minecraft.

    Specs that I know of:

    Seagate Barracuda ST2000dm001
    AMD FX8320 8 Core
    AMD R9 270x
    Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 6.0
    8.00GB Installed Memory (RAM)
