Is CPU overheating?

Hey, recently my computer has randomly started restarting when playing certain games: GTA V is one of these games.

Basically what happens is that while playing the audio currently playing will begin to loop and make a buzzing sound and the screen will freeze, then the screen will disconnect and then my PC will restart. Earlier today I downloaded HWMonitor and while playing GTA V the heat of my AMD FX-6300 reached up to 79C but it didn't make the computer restart when I was running it, the restarts happen completely randomly.

 

Is 79C too high for a CPU to be running at, and is this the reason why my computer is restarting? Any help would really be appreciated as I have no clue what to do
