Everytime I play a video game my computer shuts off after a few minutes of playing.
Some games seem to take a while, such as Tropico 5. I can play Tropico 5 for hours and then it'll crash. Most games only take a few minutes. For instance, WarThunder takes around the same time as Watch_Dogs, which takes about 10 minutes.

It doesn't say that the computer is overheating or anything.
It just shuts off out of no where.
I updated my video drivers and it said my sound card drivers were up to date so I don't know what's the problem.

Here are my specs:
Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit (6.3, Build 9600)
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor (6 CPUs), ~3.5 GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
Harddrive Space: 1.43 TB free of 1.81 TB

I've already had one side of the case open. It doesn't really help.

So I ran the WhoCrashed and it says that the last crash was on the 19th, even though I crashed last night and today.

The latest crashes just say this:

I also ran the other program on "Sensors Only" and this is what it brought up. I don't know what to do, haha:

is the 46c-49c temperature while doing nothing or playing ? the one you posted , beside check your task manager do you see any program using alot of pc performance? "CPU usage" ?
i recommend you run the game and check your CPU temperature and let us know , use this software to get CPU temperature

It says it doesn't support my processor. My processor is in the OP.

CPU 4 and 5 become parked every few seconds it seems. The rest don't seem to be parked.
