Hi guys, recently purchased a new PC for gaming, but under heavy load in one specific game (just the most strenuous of the games I'm currently running), I'm getting a BSOD with the error CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT. This has happened with the RAM xmp profiles both on and off so I don't think think that is the issue, and neither my CPU nor GPU are overclocked at all. The only thing I've noted is that the crash tends to happen around when the GPU reaches the throttling temperature ~83 deg C.

I've run up against the extent of my knowledge, so I'd really appreciate some help figuring this out.

Here is a link to the full zipped .dmp file:

PSU: 750 Watts - CoolerMaster MWE GOLD 750 - V2 80 PLUS GOLD Ultra Quiet Full Modular

based off "whocrashed" and a quick prime95 bench, I'm leaning toward CPU over heating and the cooler recommended by Cyberpower being entirely unsuitable for the cpu and needs to be replaced.
