Computer Shuts Down When Playing Games

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey.

Iv'e recently upgraded my gpu.

When i play a game for a few minutes my computer shuts down, and i don't know why.

Temps before shutdown:

cpu - 65c

gpu - 68c

 

PSU - aerocool project 7 750w

GPU - Strix vega 64 oc

CPU - Ryzen 5 3500x

RAM - 16gb ballistix 3200mhz

MOBO - steel legend B450

 

I like my gpu/cpu to stay cool even if the fans are loud.

And the computer seem to shut off when the fans start giving it some.

So my only guess would be that im asking too much of my psu, but i would have thought a 750 shouldn't have any problems.

 

psu is 62 on the 12v rail

I have 4 case fans.

and the gpu uses 3.

 

any ideas?

 

thanks

Well your power supply  should be good  but if you are doing any OC you may be hitting a power limit

have you made sure all drivers are up to date

also try logging system events to see what causes your issues windows  

past into start menu and enter this will bring up event viewer alternately just search in start event viewer 

%windir%\system32\eventvwr.msc /s

I'm not doing any OC.

I didn't update to the latest video driver (because it was not recommended) I just have now, and same issue.

When i run heaven benchmark on ultra i have no problems.

 

What do you mean by logging events?

I looked at the events, had a few critical 'kernel power 41's

This is the problem 

this error effects windows stability 

but this is all I can to help I don't have a specific solution for that 

here is a link to a Microsoft help page for the error
