Please describe the crashing. Is it a BSOD? Is it a CTD( crash to desktop)? Does the screen freeze, but audio continues? Does the system lock up?
Lots of different types of crashes and they can indicate different types of failures.
Thank you for your help, CTD just freezes, I have closed everything but the game and made it realtime importance. Nothing I can see that besides I did notice that is says very high in Power usage, I have all drivers updated.
So the game freezes then it crashes to desktop? Or does it freeze and you need to restart the PC?
Crashes to desktop
Few more questions.
What game are you playing? If it's Overwatch, check your overclocks as OW1 was very sensitive to Overclocking.
