Shut Down When Playing High End Games
So I've just built my new PC earlier this week, and already I've run into a problem. When running graphics-intensive games, my computer randomly blacks out. The fans are still running, and the power LED is still on. Holding the power button does nothing, and the only way to turn it off is to disconnect the power supply. Here are my specs:
Cooler Master Elite 350 Case (500W PSU)
AMD A8-6000K APU
Corsair Vengeance Blue 1600mhz 1X4GB
Seagate Barricuda 1TB
I'm really starting to get frustrated with this issue. It doesn't seem to have a regular attack time, it can crash 1 minute in or 10.
After doing some extensive research on several forums, I came to the conclusion that it could be a PSU issue. I replaced the cable, took out my second hard drive, as I thought this could be draining the supply too much, but to no avail.
