Computer crashing during gaming

  1. Hey folks. This has been an issue that has persisted for well over a year now. I have finally gotten sick of it due to the amount of times it has been happening. While playing almost any game my system will randomly freeze completely (no alt-tab-del) nothing responds to me. This happens on the following games (WOW, Skyrim, Fallout 4, even on Binding of Isaac)
    I have already swapped out Psu's, bought a new GPU and swapped out my ram also. My cables are fixed securely and all drivers are updated completely. This issue has persisted from windows 7 and continues in windows 10. I have made changes to the power settings, audio, and also increased fan speed, applied new heat seal on my cpu, and dusted multitudes of times with the same effect randomly. This can occur after 20 minutes of gaming or 5 hours of gaming. My system specs are as follows.

    Beep codes? Error listings in Event Viewer? Blue screens?

    Vast issues, need something to hone in on.

    Any common elements?

    Games crash - some more than others. If no common element, then it is the game itself.

    Check for updates for drivers is about all you can do at this stage.

    Drivers are all up to date. No beep codes and the only error I see is the Power Kernel from when I power the computer off. It happens when playing most games no idea why. Thank you for the reply!

    You might check each of your 'main play' games on respective forums to see if others experience crashes. I've had issues with Skyrim, Fallout NV and Fallout 3 which I was able to 'improve' (not quite resolve) based on some ideas offered on specific forums.

    Alright il check those out and get back to you then. Never thought it could just be related to certain games.
