I've reinstalled my operating system (both windows 8.1 and 10), but no matter what, when I open up a game, Overwatch in this case, my PC resets after it is on for a few mins. I've never had this issue before. Nothing shows up in the minidump folder either.


Specs:

Windows 10 64bit
GPU: Nvidia 1070
CPU: AMD FX 8350
Motherboard: gigabye 990fxa-ud3
8 GB ram
600W PSU

68C is too high for that CPU, max is 63C but you want to keep it under 60C to avoid thermal throttling and possibly shutdowns.

That PSU is pretty low quality and could also be the cause of the resets.
So it could possibly be worn out, seeing as it worked without any issues before?

Maybe, if the CPU is overclocked then I'd revert it back to stock for now if it brings the temps below 60C. If it isn't overclocked then a good quality $30-ish aftermarket cooler such as the CM EVO 212 BLACK would work well. As for the PSU it should probably be replaced as it may be the cause of the resets, this Seasonic would work well and is a good price.
