Currently having a crashing issue with my computer

I have been having this issue for a while now and i've looked at every forum related to this issue and tried many things and nothings worked.

The issue i'm having is when i start something demanding like a game it'll freeze and that can range from 5 minutes into game play or 20, and then it'll freeze and restart with a few occasions showing a red screen until i restart. i thought it might be a overheating issue but the temperatures are stable when i monitor them and then it just freezes.

i have tried cleaning my computer multiple times unplugging everything and cleaning it all and then rebuilding with nothing working, whenever i look up fixes all i can find is "make sure there isn't any dust around the cpu blocking the fans" i've triple checked and cleaned the computer and still the exact same problem and i'm looking for any help that isn't "clean it out"

This is the time of year that we get many of these problems.

You say that you have cleaned it so, we'll accept that as given.

However, when you cleaned it, did you make sure that the air was able to flow easily between the fins of the heat exchangers.

Also, is the case in a position that there is an easy airflow round about it.

wee eddie I've made sure nothing is blocking any of the fans and i have the pc below my desk with nothing blocking it i did notice that when i was watching the temperature graph after a bit it just slowly started to rise in temperature and that's when it cut off but i could see the fan still moving when this happened.

Read again ~ I did not say "fans", I said "fins"

The fans draw the cooler air through the fins of the Heat Exchanger, the best of which are made of copper
