It's possible your system in infected. Which AV program do you have? I suggest you run a full scan. Also, download & run AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes for Windows.


And if you don't already have it, download & install CCleaner-Slim & use it regularly.

After that if you still have issues, install HWMonitor and keep it open, post the voltages and temperatures at idle, when doing normal work, and after a short time gaming (before it craps out) in your reply. They are a good look into some of the things that can go wrong before other symptoms show up.

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

Let's see ... a machine constantly running at 100% is a big problem on itself.
The shutting down issue also is, but let's assume they are not related.

100% CPU usage ... there's just one question then: what are your top CPU processes ? "something" is using a lot of CPU obviously ... Unless you have an extremely slow and old CPU, like 1 or 2 cores only.
So, what processes are using CPU; CTRL-ALT-DEL - Task Manager - Processes tab, click "show all processes", then order on CPU usage and tell us what is on top.

Shutting down: only when gaming ? There's hardware and software that almost only during gaming is kicking in, like DirectX (software), and your memory card (hardware wise). There may be an issue there. First try to fix the CPU thing. Don't start gaming if your CPU is at 100%. In fact, don't start anything
