System Shutdown when running Google Chrome and SWTOR

Ok, so when ever I have Google chrome and SWTOR running at the same time my system reboots. Specifically if I have the game open and alt+tab out open chrome then tab into the game I will crash at the loading screen.

At 1st I thought it was system temp but it is not, my temps stay under what my BIOS are set to shutdown at. (CPU stays around 35-45C GPU never goes over 70C)

Next I updated all drivers and I mean all including BIOS firmware, Video, Sound and MISC motherboard drivers.

I even went though an ensured my sound and video drivers are set to not hold exclusive to applications.

Nothing worked anyone have an idea?

Just on the off chance anyone else is having this issue it was happening because I had "Use hardware acceleration" enabled in Chrome.
