pc reboots while im playing overwatch

while im playing overwatch, my pc crashes after an unknown amount of time of playing, sometimes its 5minutes and sometimes could be hours.

when it reboots, my game freezes, makes a loud noise (while music is still playing in the background) and then reboots.

i do not think my gpu is the problem as it hovers around 55c at ALL times.
i play on lowest settings and only use up 300mb of vram of the 2gb.

my pc specs are as follows:

-GTX 960 2GB
-1TB HDD
-FX-6350 (six core processor 3.9ghz)
-8GB ram DDR3
-Windows 10 pro x64 (64 bits)


i didnt custom build my pc (yes i am a scrub) so i dont know the manufacturers of my pc parts.

if you could suggest me how to measure my cpu temperature as it very well may be my cpu which is the problem.

DISCLAIMER:

I BOUGHT THIS PC 2 YEARS AGO.

First, open your PC's side panel and see what you have for a PSU. Look at the nameplate on the PSU and tell us the ratings for the +12V rail. Or post a pic of the nameplate here.

Then run CCLeaner and do the Clean and Registry portions both. Might be severe software conflicts or registry errors.

After that, run Malwarebytes (or you favorite malware killer) and see if there are any poorly written malware causing issues.

Disable any extra stuff you have running when Win starts. Look in the TRAY for stuff you can live with running manually on an as-need basis only.

Once we are sure the issue isn't software, we can move on to hardware.


I HAVE RAN BOTH AND CLEANED OUT 12 THREATS AND I WILL NOTIFY YOU IF MY GAME STILL CRASHES.!

  3. The PSU's 456W capacity for the +12V rail is good.
