My pc crashes after couple minutes of playing games, it happens with sleeping dogs and fully crashes loading red dead redemption 2. It was working yesterday so I do not know the problem. I've unparked my CPU's and updated chipsets but it hasn't fixed anything.

1st time it happened my pc kept running after the crash but display, keyboard and mouse stopped working
2nd time it restarted my pc after couple minutes of running sleeping dogs
3rd time it does the 1st again

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
Motherboard: B450 GAMING PLUS (MSI)
GPU: radeon Rx 580 8gb
PSU: 500w
two harddrives 194gb of 465 used and the other 112gb free of 297gb

What are your temps under load?
I just figured it out now but everything was fine. The backplate of the motherboard was interfering with the connections, so the metal pieces that keep USB ports in were touching with the inside of the pc which caused the pc to blue screen or shut down when playing games. All I had to do was push out the metal pieces where the USB ports are and now they do not touch or cause problems.
