This is only while playing games, if i stress test it on msi afterburner or anything similar nothing happens and temps stay low. Any input would be appreciated!

Most BIOS will generate message if system shutdown as a result of overheating, so don't think that was happening.

 

I would most be looking at bad/incompatible memory. Try different memory and see if it is more stable.

 

Hope this helps,

Ive run mem-test 3 times now and no problems, I have an extra couple of sticks ill try anyways though, Although i highly doubt its a memory issue.
