So yeah, not even sure where to post this, but here goes:

I'd been playing New World last week, and at first, sometimes the screen would just go black, I could still hear everything, but the GPU fans started spinning super fast, so I would force shutdown the PC.

After a while, I noticed the CPU cooler lighting was finicky and after this thing with the video started happening, sometimes the CPU cooler would not work or behave intermittantly. After a few times trying to run the game again, the PC once (just once, but still ) showed barely any function: only the RGBs would light up, but no fans spinning and definitely no video. This scenario varies a lot, but basically I can't run anything slightly GPU intensive (LoL, Overwatch) and sometimes not even keep the PC on even without any games on.

Power supply was one of the first things I considered. I ended up buying one (750w 80 plus gold), my PC actually turned on and I was even able to play for about 15 min, only for the same problem to happen again: suddenly no display, GPU fans spinning really hard.

I managed to test my GPU on my friend's system and it seems fine, I ran FurMark for about 12 minutes and even the temperatures didn't behave unexpectedly. I also tested his GPU on my system and the weird behavior remained.

Any clues what this issue might be? I don't have spare parts to test out, so I'm contacting technicians nearby so they can give me a hand.

My setup:

Ryzen 5 2600 stock
MSI B450 Tomahawk
2x8 GSkill 3.000mhz
1TB HDD
500MB NVME SSD
Some pretty lights
Corsair CX650w 80 plus bronze (and then Deepcool DQL750W 80 plus gold)

PSU: make, model , wattage, age, condition?

Heavy use for gaming, video editing, or even bit-mining?

My thought is that the PSU may no longer be able to meet the power demands of the system.

Starting to falter and fail.

Thank you for your answer, friend.

You just reminded me I actually left out important information, which I will add to the original post, but here it is:
