Computer shuts down RANDOMLY

 Share

Hi all,

 

I have a high-end gaming PC which has run well for a year or two. In the last few weeks, it has randomly shut down on its own. The shut down is complete - the ram LEDs are off and the system does not restart. It tends to happen while gaming, but not always.

 

I'm trying to come up with a plan to trouble shoot this. I'm keeping an eye on temperature, but that seems fine. I'm wondering if it is my PSU, but unsure how to check. My computer is, after all, a power hog.  

 

Can anyone please make any suggestions as to how to trouble shoot? Is there a way to monitor power consumption? Is there a way to get an error log from immediatley before the shut down?

 

System: 

- AS Rock OC Forumla Radeon 6900XT

- 9x RGB fans 

- 4x RGB 8gb G.Skill Trident Ram 

- AMD 5600X

- Corsair RMx Series, RM1000x PSU

Your CPU and GPU combined are less than 550W. I wouldn't really consider that a power hog.

 

That being said, you left out what case you're using, what temps are, and what EXACT power supply you're using. A shitty 1000W can be worse than a good 500W.

What does Event Viewer show?

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

Why is the 5800x so hot?

Hi Ikea, thanks for responding here. 

 

My temps do not seem to be an issue. When playing Rainbow 6, my CPU usage is nearly 100% but the temps are around 65C. My GPU has a high usage as well, but the temps are also 50-60C. My case is a Lian Li with 9x fans pushing air, so I don't think this is a temperature issue. 

 

My PSU is (maybe was?) a quality unit, a Corsair RM1000X. It was purchased in 2017. Also, I use CableMod sleeved cables.

 

My computer shut down twice while playing Rainbow 6 yesterday, so I'm getting more and more concerned. Please let me know if you have any thoughts.

Use the cables that came with the power supply and see if this still crashes.

Do you really think the cable mod cables would cause a whole computer to shut down during high usage? I worry its the PSU.

Extensions more so have been known to cause issues. It's an easy one to eliminate as a possible issue though.
