AMD FX 8350 Performance Issue

Hi everybody!!


I'm having problems with my Fx 8350 while i play any game that demands mid/high processing performance. For example: I play Witcher 3, The Division, Killing Floor 2, and any similar game. A couple of minutes since game has been executed, the CPU cooler starts to work higher and higher, some minutes later the system crashes and the motherboard CPU led turns on, then i must turn off the PSU and wait a moment to start again. I checked the CPU temperature and is always under 40°C, and i never used overclocking. I used Open Hardware Monitor, Speedfan and AMD Override to monitor temperature and fans.


I tried the following things so far:


- Bios to factory settings

- Bios update

- Chipset driver update

- Tested GPU in other Pc (in case the GPU were the problem)

- Memory test

- Disc test

- Tryied with a Phenom II 1055T and worked just fine


Any idea, any similar case or any solution??

Thanks so much
