Hey guys first time here
My 6 year old pc has been shutting down lately when running games (league of legends) and sometimes when I run chrome
Specs:
* AMD FX-6300 Piledriver (Vishera) 3.5GHz (4.1GHz turbo) (Six Core) AM3+ 8MB Cache
* Spire Kestrel-King II AMD 64 fan
* ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+, AMD 970, Cross Fire, SATA3, USB 3.0, HD Audio
* 8GB (2x4GB) PC12800 DDR3 1600 Dual Channel
* AMD Radeon R9 270X 2GB PCI Express 16x Quad head DVI, HDMI
* 1TB Western Digital Blue 7200RPM SATA 3 6.0Gb/s 32m cache
* LG Blu-ray Reader, 16x DVD Recorder SATA combo drive
* Realtek HD digital audio (onboard)
* Ethernet network adapter (onboard)
* PowMax Black Mid Tower ATX Case w/ Front USB
* Thermaltake TR2 600W ultra quiet ATX Power Supply, SLI & X-fire ready
* Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit DVD w/SP1 (Free upgrade to Win 10 download)
* Standard assembly and test 3-5 business days
Got a little bit better after I cleaned it, there were alot of dust. There are still alot of dust. But PC still turns off when I'm running games
There's noticeable loud fan sounds when it's about to turn off, I know nothing about pc so not sure if I should do a deep clean (any recommandation on cleaning tools would be appreciated too!)
Or should I replace some parts?
Thanks for the time guys.
