Hi, as of late I've been having an issue with computer crashes while playing higher-end games. My screen goes black and there is some audio noises, and then my computer restarts. What I've been noticing is that my motherboard's CPU light turns on when I crash. My computer doesn't crash during regular usage or while I'm playing less graphics-heavy games, so does anyone know how to fix this issue? I really don't want to have to turn down the graphics settings on my games.

I recently swapped out my RAM due to unrelated malfunctions , but I have had this issue for a good while now. I have also recently completely reset my operating system, including reinstalling it off of the disk, and have updated my BIOS numerous times recently.

To clarify: my computer runs perfectly fine when I'm not playing high-intensity games.

Motherboard: B450 Gaming Plus (MS-7B86)
Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor, 3600 Mhz, 6 Cores, 12 Logical Processors
GPU: AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
16GB of RAM
OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Home
650W Power Supply

Thanks in advance, tell me if I need to post more information.
