first of all are u saying that ya pc shuts down while playing games like Crysis after a minimal period of time but plays ok for a while, if so then it sounds like u have heating issue, basically crysis for example is extremely graphic demanding so what is happening is ya pc stops and shuts down to prevent ya cpu from burning out i presume u have a stock heatsink cooling fan..? u can set the shut down level temp higher in ya bois setup but dont set it to high just another 5degrees or so then check crysis again.....this is a common problem with demanding games....keeping ya pc as cool as possible is most important. i,m presuming if u play low graphical games it is fine..! if u get a free cpu temp program u can check ya temps when this happens go to google and type in HWMonitor and D/l the free software then install it then check temps when its shuts down. ya cpu shouldnt get above 60c at any a temporary measure. take of ya pc side panel off and blow a fast fan into it aiming at ya cpu then try crysis again if it improves thats ya problem then u need to upgrade ya cpu heatsink cooling fan ok ......
