Hi, i built my own computer a couple months ago mostly for gaming and have been having trouble with playing games on it. Every game i trya game it runs perfectly fine for a random amount of time before it just shuts off and goes back to the desktop immediately. This has been going on for quite some time now and have exhausted most options that at least i know of. I checked my temp inside my comp and it was a little hot so i replaced the heatsink with a nicer one (which did cool down the pc considerably but still had no effect on the games), I checked all my drivers to see if they were out of date and i even wiped most of my hard drives (minus the one that has all my music and movies on it). None of these helped. A game might shut down as soon as i start it up 3 times in a row then be fine for 4 or 5 hours then shut down again, it's always so random.
My computer specs are:
ASRock 970 Extreme3
16gb PNY DDR3 ram
MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 ti
2 1Tb hardrives
and a 60gb ssd
So my comp shouldn't be having any trouble playing most games on the market and it still does this. I run my games through steam but i also try games outside of it like league and such and run into the same problem. oh one more thing, maybe 1 out of 10 or 15 times it will shut down the game like always but then it blue screen and fully restart my pc.
I hope you guys can help cause at this point i may go back to consoles.
