PC Shutsdown by it self while playing different games

Hello there. I need some help around this problem. I am playing few games normally, but on some games my PC shuts down for no reason.

This games I play normal without PC shutting down:

This game I can't run normally without PC shutting down:

RUST "60 FPS", Battlefield 4 "+60 FPS", Trove "+300 FPS", H1Z1 "+60 FPS", Heroes Of The Storm "+300 FPS", Minecraft (With shader pack) "+350 FPS" and some other games.

This are my PC Specs:

Power Supply: LC6600 V2.2 600W
GPU: Gainward GEFORCE GTX 960 4GB Phantom
CPU: AMD FX 8350 4.0 GHz
Motherboard: M5A78L-M USB3
Hard Drive: WDC WD5003AZEX-00K1GA0 500GB

Please help me solve this problem with shutting down. Thanks

this to me sounds like a power supply issue more than anything even if it only happens with certain games. Just the fact that it randomly shuts down. I might consider testing the power supply with a volt meter if you have one; or if you dont; then take the power supply out and take it to a local computer shop and see if they can test it for you because it sounds to me like something inside the power supply is starting to give out.

After doing as matts6887 suggests I would also recommend monitoring your cpu and gpu temps.

Your specs don't indicate what cpu cooling that your system has.
