Computer shuts down during games

Hello there,

I have decided to write in this forum after I have went through every piece of advice on the internet.

My problem is that my pc shuts down randomly during games and windows gives me the 41 kernel power error ( which basically means it was shut down unexpectedly ).

This is my spec:

Computer Type ACPI x64-based PC
CPU Type QuadCore Intel Core i7-4790, 4000 MHz
Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Motherboard Name Gigabyte GA-Z97-D3H
Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4 GB)
Disk Drive Samsung SSD 850 PRO 256GB (256 GB, SATA-III)
Disk Drive WDC WD20EZRX-00D8PB0 (2 MB, SATA-III)
System Memory 8GBx2 (DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM) Corsair Vengeance Pro
PSU type G750M Cooler Master

I have seen a couple of answers out there:

Multiple drivers for audio devices, turning off the feature that allows windows to shut down on itself and many many more.

It started with only Fallout 4 but since then a Battelfield 4 has had the same restart problem.

The problem was fixed for a short time when I updated windows 10 but for some reason afterwards the problem came back.

I would very appreciate any help.

Thank you.
