MSI Radeon 7990; Computer is freezing on game startup. Help!

Specs: Windows 7
Okay guys, new to the forum, and im desperate here. Just picked up a rig (specs below) and I got around to installing all my games, and updating my drivers. Now, when I played League of Legends, everything was fine, but as soon as I started up Nosgoth, Skyrim, Left4Dead, Rust or anything really, my machine froze, and had to do a hard restart. After I tried playing one of these games, League of Legends started doing the same thing too, freezing my machine upon start of actual gameplay. Can anyone help please?!?

Kind of outdated platform, the socket 1366 EOL was 2012. My guess is either overheating or the power supply. The multi +12v rail design is not the way to go.

My Mobo PCI-E slot is locked at 1.50V. Is that a bad thing or no?
