How about your graphics card temperature?You could also try to disable the "restart after temps reach xx Celsius" fuction from your BIOS.I don't recommend that although!

clean out all the dust from every fan in ur pc also ur heatsink with compressed air, and if that doesnt help change the thermal paste from ur GPU , u can also change thermal paste from ur CPU if u would like but right now it sounds good (40c)

BTW if i were u i'd never disable or increase temperature function in ur BIOS ull kill ur hardware!

Well, that's why you read the reviews before you buy it.
