Specs:
CPU: Intel i5-6400k
CPU Cooler: CRYORIG H7 49.0 CFM
GPU: AMD Rx470
Motherboard: Asus LGA1151 MicroATX
PSU: EVGA 430W

While playing certain games, computer will black screen, while the game audio loops for about 20 seconds, then the monitor shuts off. The computer continues to run, which shuts off after about 30 seconds.

Most threads said that the main cause of this was CPU/GPU temps being too high. There is a CPU cooler and MSI Afterburner was being run while the computer crashed and showed temps of GPU 52C CPU 42C

A program called WhoCrashed did not come up with any crash reports for the crashing. Thank you for any replies.

If the computer straight up turns off it could be a PSU issue as my track record with EVGA PSUs is pretty bleak, although that could be poor luck on my side.

Are you running any overclocked, and if so to what extremities?

Nothing is overclocked

I just want to confirm that buying a new PSU DID NOT solve this problem. The problem consists, and it actually doesn't matter what game I am playing, it can crash during any game.
