Okay I've had my Acer Nitro 5 for about a year now and didn't have much trouble with playing games. Some games were too much to handle so I'd put it on max fan speed, and they'd play perfectly. However these days it crashes out of nowhere while playing. There's a window that usually pops up before it does saying hardware problem, I'll edit in what it says later.
Even games like sims 4 or nfs 2005 crash while I'm playing I don't kmow where the problem really lies.
