I know this question has been asked quite a lot over the past years but I have yet to find an answer that fixes my problem.This usually happens on "intensive" games such as Fallout 4 or Kingdom Come: Deliverance. It also seems to happen somewhat randomly, as just recently I was playing KC: D for about 1.5 hours and then it crashed while another time I got maybe 5 minutes before it crashed. Following the solutions to other threads, I have un-parked my cores, tested my ram and hard drives, and also my PSU is more than enough for my set up. Also I dont believe the PSU is the problem because I can play ARMA 3 and Battlefield 4 without crashing and I would say those games can get more power thirsty than FO4. I have checked the dust and filters as well, over heating is not an issue.

Specs:
AMD A-10 7700k, 3.4ghz
Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H Motherboard
4x4 Ripjaw 16gb RAM
EVGA GTX 960 2gb
Corsair 500M 500w PSU
Samsung 850 EVO 120gb SSD (OS)
WD Blue 3tb storage drive
Windows 10 Home 64 bit

start by updating your video card driver...and make sure you get it from the manufacturers website

 

over heating is not an issue

 

how did you come to this conclusion?

I have updated them, also I uninstalled them all and reinstalled. and I came to the conclusion because Im monitoring the temperatures on my second monitor and theyre all good

remove your CPU fan and heat sink assembly, clean them good....apply new thermal paste before re-installing the heat sink
