Question PC crashing when running games

Jun 23, 2020
Hi, ive been having an issue for a while where my pc will randomly blue screen when playing games (whea uncorrectable each time), It usually crashes during game launch or randomly during the game (say booting up rainbow six siege or whilst playing). I also ran a intel diagnostics test and the pc bluescreened again (whea uncorrectable) during the test. does this mean my cpu is the issue? what should i do?

update : after running the test again whilst watching hw info it seems my cores are overheating around the maths section, I'm assuming I've just wired my cooler badly and it isn't performing correctly.
