I moved into a new house with AFCI breakers about a year ago. Within the last month, my PC started to trip the breaker while gaming. Never when browsing the internet - only when under significant load.

I first tried testing my PC on a different circuit also with AFCI breakers. That tripped too. Same circumstances - only while gaming.

So I thought maybe it was my PSU. Replaced it and all the cables with a new one (EVGA SuperNova 650 G3). Same issue - PC is tripping the circuit while gaming.

At this point I don't know what to do. Seems to clearly be a component in my PC but what besides the PSU could be the problem?

What makes it unusual is that this is happening on two separate circuits. So I'm not sure that it's an electrician issue? I think it might be my PC.
