Long story short my pc shuts down entirely then immediately restarts when playing certain games. It first started happening on CSGO, I would be anywhere from 5-30 minutes into a game and my computer would immediately turn off at some point as if it had no power, and then start back up after a few seconds. Recently it has been happening on Black Ops 3 anytime I try to play zombies it almost immediately turns off. And it has also been happening on Fortnite every other game, one game I make it all the way through then the next it turns off before I can even parachute down. I have scanned my hard drive and no errors were found, and I have also used afterburner while playing both CSGO and fortnite and both my cpu and gpu stayed below 55 C. In my event viewer it shows critical error id 41 which says something like "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first."

Specs:
CPU: i5-4430 3.0 Ghz
Gpu: Nvidia GTX 1060 6Gb
PSU: Some sketchy 700W brand
