Hey Guys,

So Ive always had this problem with the battlefield where after some time of playing it crashes my computer and just shuts it off immeadietly and unexpectedly. Since picking up the new game BF4, this happens to me every time I try to play, about 5 minutes in. Ive tried updating my drivers and everything but nothing seems to work. Please Help

What power supply are you useing. When a PC just "shuts off" its always going to be a PSU issue 8 times out of 10.

What tempertures is your CPU running at.

My PSU is a corsair CX600

These temperatures I got are from SpeedFan

Temp1: 35C

Temp2: Around 60C

Temp3: Around 45-55C

HD1: 0C

HD0: Around 35C

 

While playing BF4 before it crashes the computer, the heat goes up to

Temp1: 35C

Temp2: 75-80C

Temp3: 70-75C

GPU: 35C

Edit----

I have experimented with the game and speedfan a little more. And, it seems like the fan cannot keep up with Temp 2 and Temp 3 which reach 85+C and 80+C when they overheat. Can someone reccomend me a good fan and where I would have to install it on my computer?

Get you a Corsair H60 closed loop liquid cooler. It's inexpensive yet powerful.

Your computer is shutting off due to Thermal overheating of the CPU. Stop playing games before you irriversably damage your CPU. 

Get a real CPU cooler.

Corsair H50/ H60.

Wow does the AMD processor overheat at 80C? My i7 930 was regularly around 100C and I ran it for 3 years and it's still working fine.

I would like to just add that it's completely unnecessary to get a liquid cooler like the ones suggested. It's just as good to get a good air cooler like the hyper 212 evo or a noctua one, and it'll be cheaper. Water cooling is only necessary if you're OCing

Untrue. See, some people like me live in places where the ambient temperature can hit 27°C or higher which means even on a stock clocked processor under heavy load (say gaming) it can easily get very warm. Closed loop coolers are very powerful, yet very quiet, and the price difference between some of them and a performance air cooler is fairly small. Also, many performance air coolers are of the tower style which require large cases for clearance, whereas a closed loop cooler can fit in mATX setups quite easily, which is very convenient.

If you're using the stock cooler, then pretty much any after market air cooler will do much better, but the more you spend, the better cooling you'll get for a given noise level.

A single-fan radiator closed-loop water cooler will generally give you as good or better cooling than top-end air coolers, with less noise.  Go with a dual-fan radiator unit, and you'll get substantially better cooling.  You'll just have to spend more, and must have a case with a place to mount the larger radiator.

@black_zion: Good point I didn't think about mATX. Just assumed it's ATX and as long as he has a mid tower it'll be fine with any reasonably sized air cooler. Anyways, 27C ambient is pretty low, I'm in AUS and in summer here it goes up to 40C. My PC runs 5C hotter than ambient using a noctua nh-u9b, although admittedly I have 4 other case fans plus hidden cables so good air flow. If the OP is bad at cable management or he's using mATX then yes he'd pretty much have to go with a water cooler, in which case I second the recommendations.
