Dumbass me.... I have the fan on the Water Cooling block sucking in air XD. But no, I have a thermometer running while I'm gaming and it never gets to a bad temperature.

I run the probe in through the water cooling openings in the back of the case. I can then put the probe anywhere I have a question about the temps. If you do this and have it say on the CPU fins and it shuts down, check the temp readout before it has a chance to cool off. If you're ok there next stop is the GPU cooling. Same drill as before. If it shuts down check the temp.
If it's temp related, you'll have a pretty good idea who the culprit is.
Don't jump to conclusions and take your time trouble shooting. Most of the time it's something simple that gets overlooked. In other words, the devil's in the details.
By the way guys I have a AX850 for several years now. Not a single problem out of it, period. Right now it's been pushing my system non stop for 6 months unattended.
Wait a minute here. Do you have your computer on a UPS? Could be a brown out or a spike. Hmmm
No I don't have a UPS. Where I live, I really don't have the need for one. We rarely ever lose power, and it's mostly during the summer when lighting storms roll through, and at that point, she gets unplugged because I'm never risking a surge
