CPU is overheating and shutting down. Its supposed to be a built in safegaurd to stop damage to the CPU but it will still create alot of damage after it runs for a while.

you can try just a larger fan and see if that does it. Make sure you use the heat grease properly.

If that doesnt do it, then replacing the CPU is all you should have to do. Then use the larger fan on the new one
