i set fresh thermal paste like 4 months ago and it was 50 degrees C on full load....Now on idle it hits 50C and on full load around 70C and my pc keeps turning off in games could it be that CPU is overheating? or that my PSU is too low on power?

If the cooler is snug, and your paste is only four months old, I'd have to start looking at the fan speed as well as the ambient temperature inside the case.

Maybe you fan is running to slow and you can adjust a fan curve....or the case temps are high for some reason.

There aren't that many things it could be.
