Default PC Rebooting

Hello

I just got a new computer. Whenever I play games like Battlefield 3 and Crysis 3, after a period of time (sometimes 10min, sometimes 1 hour) the pc reboots itself.

This is my setup

Intel i7-3770
Asus geforce gtx 670
Gigabyte z77-d3h motherboard
cooler master hyper 212 fan
kingston 4gb ram sticks (x2)
thermaltake 850watts psu
kingston 120gb ssd
seagate barracuda hdd 1 Tb

I would really appreciate your help

Sounds like it is over heating, are you keeping any record of your temps?
You can use HWMonitor to see if your system is getting too hot and causing a forced shutdown
HWMonitor CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Well yes, the highest temp was 80C when playing, 40 C idle.

yup...if your cpu is hitting 80c, your running way too hot. Is it o/c'd?
Clean out the heatsink and fan, re-check that CM hyper 212 install. It doesn't sound like you have it installed right

Nope, it's not overclocked
