    Hello,
    I was playing league of Legends, the game ended and when I clicked "continue", pc suddenly turned off. Power light was blinking like it would do when computer sleeps. I tried power button and etc. but it kept blinking, so I plugged off power and repluged it. When I turned on pc, one of the fans worked very loud, I turned pc off immediately. Waited for some time and turned on again. I heard 5 short beeps, but pc booted up. After keeping it on for 5-10mins I turned it off and on again. Didn't hear any beeps.
    I know I wrote a lot of things in one place and hope you will understand what I meant, but my main question would be.
    Should I worry about something or just keep using pc like nothing happened?

    Get a copy of HWMonitor (its free) and run it to monitor your temps: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
    50-70 degrees Celsius is OK; but, temps over 80 when you are not stressing the PC are worrisome and possibly dangerous.

    Do I need to check it every few minutes or can I check it every hour?

    Assuming it's a factory-brand one, advise us what the brand name and model name and model number of your computer is.
    If it's a self-built one, advise us what the brand name and model number of its motherboard is.

    MSI 970 GAMING motherboard
    It supports a maximum of 32 GB(8 GB X 4) of DDR3-1333 or DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1866 RAM and has dual channel technology.
    It has an AMI BIOS.
    5 beeps indicates an issue with the processor, but I can't confirm that.
    I don't know if those "cheap ones" are part of your issues, but I would use more than 6 GB(2 GB X 3) of RAM in a gaming computer.

    DavisMcCarn is much more knowledgeable in hardware issues than I am, so I'll leave you with him.

    What temps is HWMonitor showing and its the CPU and GPU that matter the most.
