Computer shuts down after gaming for 5-10 minutes

After graphics intensive gaming for like 10 minutes, my computer shuts down for no discernible reason (I've tried Payday 2, Warframe, and Shadow Warrior). My GPU temps are just under 80°C (like one or two degrees), my CPU temps are <60°C, both under load after I cleaned the fans. I've reinstalled my graphics drivers. I have no idea what the problem is but a weird thing that happens is that i must manually disconnect power for about 30 seconds and wait for peripherals to shut down (like keyboard and mouse which have blinky lights that stop) or wait about 12 hours before I can start my computer again.
Specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Processor
MSI MS-7596 Motherboard
12 GB RAM
XFX Radeon HD 6970
Thermaltake 500W PSU
At this point, I'm thinking it's either my components are still overheating even after being cleaned, or my psu is too weak to run everything under full load but I'd rather not buy anything before I know for sure.

Say exact model of PSU Thermaltake 500W PSU.Your CPU and Videocard are very greedy for power.

This seems more like a thermal problem with the power supply and not the MOBO or plugins.  Was the PS fan cleaned too??

12 Voltage line is important how much powerful is.500W means nothing.

I did not clean the power supply fan, is there any way to do that without opening it up?

Also, it is a Thermaltake TR2 TR-500

Thermaltake but low class.Costs 45$.You need PSU more than 100$ I think.

Is there a way to test if this is the problem or not?
