What power supply? Stock RAM settings or did you use the XMP settings? What's your CPU/GPU temps?

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I’ve tried tweaking settings but none worked so now it’s all back to default. I made the gpu’s Fans stay on a higher than needed level so it’s temps stayed around 42-52°c. I don’t really know any programs to get cpu temp..

welcome to the Linus Tech Tips forums!

 

what power supply?

instant shutdowns under any load suggests PSU failures most of the time.

If you haven't already reinstalled windows try going into MSI afterburner or something and set the GPU's power target to 50%

Does it crash when you try to run just cinebench?

Cinebench is free to download and use, if it doesn't crash from CPU stress only then the issue is between the GPU and power supply.

Most likely the issue is with the GPU then


For some reason it could be the motherboard and/or the PCI-e slot.

Or the power supply

 

But most likely the GPU just try exchanging it or returning it or something.

You should find another system to test the GPU in before you go off buying a new PSU

If your current PSU can handle a heavy load on your CPU it's probably not the power supply.
