Main Issue;

My system keeps shutting off during any gaming, looking in event viewer and at system logs, it is Kernel Power Even ID 41 (63). I figured I'd run some benchmarks while monitoring my system using HWiNFO64, MSI Afterburner and Ryzen Master for anything that may be causing this. I've been able to run 2 Time Spy and 1 Fire Strike benchmark without issue, but when I try to play a game my system crashes withing minutes, I've tried several different games which I will list;

Apex Legends
Path of Exile
Mutant Year Zero; Road to Eden
Last Epoch
No Man's Sky

All of them lead to my system shutting down within minutes, I tried games that are super easy on systems like Stardew Valley and Hades which borh ran with no issues. I figured this might be an issue with the GPU so I replaced the thermal paste and the thermal pads (not backplate thermal pads) and though I did notice my GPU running cooler both idle and under load, I still get crashes in games. I'm so lost on how to solve this and it's frustrating, if anyone could help I would really apprecaite it.

My system specs are;

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600
RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200MHz DDR4
Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING
Storage: 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD / Seagate 1TB 5400RPM HDD
GPU: MSI RTX 2080Ti Ventus Edition
PSU: Kolink Alimentation ATX KL-1000m - 1000W
Case: Thermaltake View 71 TG
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64bit (Build 19042)
