I've checked the logs and all it seems to come up with is that windows lost power unexpectedly

Then either the crash was so bad it couldn't write to the log. It may have had time to create a dump log or the power did fail.

Run memtest for a few days.

May have to swap parts to diag it.

Might boot to bios and see if any health settings offer clues.

Hang up and live.

Test your PSU, run memtest, run SpinRite or something similar. Is it all games or only one specific game? Is it only graphically intensive games or any kind of game?
