[SOLVED] Even after new GPU and PSU, PC still crashes mid-game

Hey,

So I have an issue where I'll be playing a game for around 10 minutes perfectly fine, GPU and CPU temps all under 60C , but the PC will shut down and restart without warning. I used to run on a second hand, worn out GTX 1060 3gb and recently replaced it with a new RTX 2060 Super but the problem still occurs. After ruling out it being a GPU issue, I'm thinking it could be a PSU issue but after I just spent a lot of money on a new GPU i don't want to rush in to buying a new PSU just yet, in case that isn't the issue.

If anyone has any ideas or has even been through this issue please leave any suggestions you have.

Thanks

My setup is:
CPU: Ryzen 7 1700
Mobo: MSI A320 Pro VD Plus
Ram: SK Hyni 16 GB (2x8GB)
PSU: Aerocool MOD XT 750W
HDD: Toshiba P300 1TB 7200RPM 3.5"
Case: NZXT H500i

Welcome to the forums my friend!

Many aerocool PSUs are poor quality, outside of the Project 7 series maybe.
Due to the PSU itself, I would also suggest upgrading to a good quality unit.

Usually with random restarts, one software has been eliminated it usually goes:

PSU > GPU > RAM > MB > CPU.

And naturally if they are poorer quality PSUs, it tends to be more likely.

Thanks so much for your help, I have been suspicious of the power supply for a while but considering it was newer than a lot of my other parts i hoped it wouldn't be that, but now i'm guessing my best bet is to get a more reliable one.

Do you think an EVGA 600W 80+ White would be reliable or should I go for a bronze or silver rating to be sure?

Thanks

Bronze rating bears no real reflection of the quality of the unit, and the EVGA White series are probably just as bad. Most budget friendly PSU most would recommend that is still good quality is the Corsair CX.

There are better, but it's excellent value for quality.
