Random reboots when playing games?

Salutations everyone, this is my first post on sevenforums! Yeah, yeah another annoying ex-guest seeking help, SORRY! If I'm posting in the wrong section I trully apologize, I had a look around and thought this was the right place. I'll try to give you guys as much info as possible to help you help me, that is if you fell like it... to make things easier I'll highlight the important things...
It happened some days ago, I was bored and decided to install an old game of mine(WHY?WHY?!), installation runned smoothly, I installed it in my second partition( I use a SSD for Windows and a HD for stuff, I'll post specs later), I was about to launch it and a message showed up, it was warning me that the resolution was going to be set lower(or something like that), I didn't really bother, after the game's Intro my PC would Reboot. OK I thought, bad luck maybe? I tried again, and the story repeated. After that I made a test, and my PC would reboot after like 5 minutes playing Chess Titans? What?

I made some researchs through google but... Well you can guess since I'm posting here. And I also tried some things to fix it.
. Cleaned ALL my drivers and put it all together again.
. Used some of the commands to auto-fix/check but nothig wrong was found
. Used the System Restore to before the installation of the game, but problem persisted.
. Auto-Reboot is turned off, it still reboots.


Some info that might be usefull.
. My PCSX2 works just fine. That means the PSU works just fine with the usage of my Video Card. But I still wonder...
. The game I tried to install is really easy to run, If needed I can give the name but, It's so old I fell ashamed of saying(...).

My Config :
Intel LGA1150
SSD Sandisk 128GB
HD Barracuda 1T
Geforce GTX 650 ti
CORSAIR CX430 80 PLUS BRONZE
Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz
Watercooler Corsair Hydro Series H55
Intel i5 4670K


Any suggestion or solutions are welcome... Thanks in advance...
@EDIT -> The real cause is Event ID 41 aparently. I have one question tough, Why playing Chess Titans would trigger this reaction? ( I can play something heavier like emulating PCXE2 without having this issue)

@Devlin1888 I had tried that maneuver with the game previously and it rebooted again :/ Right now, I have it unninstaled(Because I used system restore). But I don't think it's normal for the PC to reboot with Chess Titans tough.

@edit. I made a second test with Chess Titans, and check the Event Log, My PC uses Portuguese as Settings so I'll try to translate what was found... "O processo C:\Windows\system32\winlogon.exe (RENATO-PC) iniciou reiniciar do computador RENATO-PC pelo usuário Renato-PC\Renato por este motivo: Não foi encontrado um título para esta razão" --> "The archive C:\Windows\system32\winlogon.exe(RENATO-PC) started reboot on the computer RENATO-PC bythe user Renato-PC\Renato for this reason: A title for this reason was not found"

@2edi. I made a thirdtest using Chess Titans as a base, it seems like the PC won't restart if I don't play the game(I can have the game open), I could say it happens when the computer is processing but I dunno...

@3edit. Sorry, I posted the wrong event apparently, Edited in Main post

Random FPS lag while playing games
I've been playing games such as Counter-Strike: Source for the past while, now. At first, the game would run fine at 40 FPS. And it did for a while. Now, the game frame rate will randomly drop to 10-20 FPS. This isn't chronic, as it will go away after about a minute. I've kept my CPU temp and usage...
