Hey everyone, I'm having a lot of trouble here. I recently built a new pc (Will list the specs at the end). Everything seems to work fine, until I try and play any games, then my computer will just shut off, it doesn't restart, it doesn't blue screen, it just turns off. I was told it was most likely the power supply, so I changed that from a Powercool 750w to a Corsair 600w CXM, that didn't fix the problem, in fact, it's doing the exact same thing. I thought it might be the CPU, so I downloaded CoreTemp and checked my CPU temps, everything there was fine, my graphics card the same, running at about 29 degrees idle.

It doesn't make any sense to me, I've also reinstalled Windows but it keeps happening. Do you guys have any idea what's going on?

CPU - AMD Vishera 6300 3.5GHz
GPU - XFX AMD 7850 2GB
RAM - 8GB Kingston HyperX
HDD - 1TB Seagate Barracuda
PSU - 600W Corsair CXM

Try booting with one RAM module at a time to see if you can find a defective stick.

I agreed, checking RAM is essential.

But we may try the following as well:
1. reset the Bios default, install the mobo latest chipset driver and must follow by a reboot for the new driver to take effect
2. install the new video card driver
3. install the HDD controller driver if any.
4. install the latest directx driver follow by a reboot.

Hope this helps you.
