Hey there.

If the CPU overheats, the PC will power off to stop it from being destroyed. This is most likely why it shuts down during gaming, as gaming puts a lot of strain on the processor and causing it to get hot.

Try the things below to see why it's overheating;

- Check your CPU fan spins and seems to work when the PC is on.
- Remove the CPU heatsink from the processor, and check there is thermal paste there.
- Check your cases airflow and that the fans are all working and not clogged with dust.
- Make sure your PC is not in a small enclosed space that restricts air flow

I would also advise that you go into BIOS and check what speed the fan is running at. If you've changed settings in the BIOS you may have turned the fan down to a point where it's not cooling the processor efficiently.
