Is your system overheating or locking up?

Well, my system is running at 40-60 celsius, so i dont think it is overheating.
I have a 800W Corsair power supply, and yes my thermal paste is correct.

40-60 degree for an i7 is hot at idle that is if u game the heat will rise up to 70 maybe even 75 which will activate cpu heat sensors and crash the game or turn off the pc, try cleaning out the dust and if the paste is put as correctly as u said then u should have no issues after cleaning the dust

well since ur cpu fans arent spinning when u game and that the temps are reaching 65 then u have a problem, u say ur sure no one messed around with ur cpu, or with ur fans CPI settings, when u game the temperature rises thus leading the fans to speed up if thermal paste was not properly applied or was removed due to heat this would happen.
download speedfan and check ur fan speed at idle and when u game, and go to ur bios and check the fan settings there
