Default Computer turns off but power remains on, possibly suspect GPU

I have bought a 1000W Cougar CMX PSU and recently while playing a game ( Cubeworld) my computer seems to be shutting off 5 - 20 mins during game play and turns on but never really powers off. I then went to the shop thinking it was the new PSU and got a replacement, I have now installed this new replacement and the problem is still occurring which is leading me to believe it could possibly be my graphics card or CPU. My CPU and GPU, HDD,s MOBO, PSU are listed Below:

All inside an Elysium HTTP Case

The problem has only recently started playing up, i recently replaced my PSU because i had a 650 and i think it Blew out as it stopped powering anything and i think i made it dead.

When surfing online the computer is fine, i have not tested this with other games as of yet, (will try after posting this). I have stress tested my CPU (62 degrees Celsius ) and GPU (68 Degrees Celsius) and i haven't been able to replicate the same error, i have also updated all my drivers, Cleaned out any dust that could cause a problem, reset Bios to default settings. Pretty much done all i can think of.....

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks

Maybe it's the game, try re-installing it. Also make the uninstall as clean as possible by deleting all the settings. You can backup save data, but try testing the game without it at first.

"Most people run into this problem because they are overclocking their graphics processor or their central processor." Read here: http://voices.yahoo.com/pc-restarts-...n-8458129.html

We did incidentally receive your contact about not being able to make this post. As it is here now it seems you were able to overcome whatever the issue was.
