So whenever I'm playing a game or just watching a stream after a bit my computer randomly turns off so I looked into and was looking my temps for my computer and saw that my CPU is getting around 70-80 Celsius so I'm not sure if it's the power supply or the CPU also my GPU gets around 47-50 idk if that's high or not
I would love the help on this so I don't buy something that I don't need

70-80 is very high. Is your machine a custom build or off-the-shelf? First thing first:

1. Is the CPU fan working?
2. Take a can of air and blow out the heatsink.
3. With the PC off, see if the heatsink feels "loose". Don't beat on it, but it shouldn't move at all.

If I had to guess I'd say something is overheating, but those temps (GPU) you listed don't seem bad at all. My GPU will hit 80 to 90 C running intensive games, sometimes hotter during the summer. I don't know about CPU temps.

Get some compressed air and flush all the dust and shit out of all of the components you can get to. Download a program called SpeedFan, and monitor your temps while letting a game or video run for a while. You may also need to reapply thermal paste to your CPU if you've had it for a while.




Watch someone that actually knows what they're talking about come by and blow me out of the water.

Also, run this: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html and post a screenshot.

CPU is the only thing worrying, GPU seems good. My CPU barely hits 60 under full load.

This is incredibly off-topic but I can't help pointing out that your avatar still has a Santa hat and I just now noticed.

That's a bannable offense isn't it?

Ya, CPU, according to the interwebs, should be way below 60C.
