sounds like a overheating problem, could be CPU or GPU. (probably GPU)

i'dd say wait about 12 hours for in depth trouble shooting help ;)

You can check the temps internally by installing HWMontor, report all of the temps at idle, after running normally for a while, and the max after 10 minutes of gaming. The numbers will tell us if you have an overheating issue and may just need physical cleaning. Blowing compressed air can into each of the ports will often help with this on most laptops.

Another possible issue is either malware or background programs running and drawing down the available resources. Run these steps to do a software clean up:
1- ADWCleaner by Mlwarebytes, remove all it finds
2- Malwarebytes free version, not free trial, Select Scan for RootKits option, remove all it finds
3- Disk Clean Up (Computer, right click on C drive, select properties, Disk CleanUp. Select all or nearly all, OK, and Delete. This can take a little while when checking first and then cleaning.
4- Open your browser and clear out your browser history.
5- Check browser add ons for stuff you do not need. Disable or remove Flash Player unless needed for something specific, same with Java.
6- Restart (Windows 7 & before, shut down, wait 20 seconds and start; Windows 10 (maybe 8.1 too) use the Restart option rather than shut down since it clears out remembered states from last use).
Report all results. If anything significant in first two steps, copy/past the reports in separate replies for review.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If it really is every ten seconds, and is very regular (even if it
is some other period of time or isn't *perfectly* regular...), then
I'd say it is a background process.

A few computers back, I was trying to figure out what was
causing a disk access every 2 seconds. It stopped when I
uninstalled the program that came with my HP printer. The
program did nothing useful. Every function of the printer
worked fine without the program.

it can even be that it was throttling the CPU. If you told us what your CPU temperature in games, maybe we could help you.
