Yea this is probably something you guys get asked a lot but recently my computer has recently started to crash randomly during games. When it first started I took apart the computer and kind of cleaned everything out and put it back together. Didn't help. It happens on games that don't even require much to run. Example: I can run GTA V High settings fine for hours, 60 fps little lag. But then I get on Reign of Kings for 2 minutes and my screen goes black, then the computer restarts. Just a few minutes ago I took apart my gpu and put in new thermal paste, it is running cooler but the games still crash. Any advice could help. Thanks.
Edit: it doesn't only happen on reign of kings. It has happened on rust, overwatch, and dayz. I believe that's all I've had trouble with
