Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

If you live in a region or neighborhood that has frequent blackouts, then you're advised to invest into an UPS. That way you don't see s sudden power failure on your system, and perhaps a point where you loose valuable data and/or components.

Make and model of your PSU in your build?

I use enlight blacksilver 400 watt PSU... Since it decent enough to do the works...

There no lost data (thank god) since all i do on that computer is currently on pause menu.

The chkdsk doesnt give me error but the sfc scan give some error but say it manage to repair all of it... Do you think its going to be fine ?.

You're probably OK, but I'd be worried about that PSU long-term. Like most, if not all of Enlight's PSUs, the wattage is basically a fiction with just over 300W of +12V power available. Ancient, outdated design and very cheap parts. Unless you have a very basic office PC, I'd avoid using this PSU like the plague.
