My 3 year old antec truepower classic 650w has been having issues powering my computer under load, such as when my GPU is being stress tested. The issue causes my pc to turn off, no blue screen or shutdown, just black and it turns back on. I did some tests on my CPU, GPU, ssd and system file checker. Issue happens when my pc is on for an extended period aprox 7 hours and is in game or when testing my gpu or psu test on OCCT. I did switch to an SSD about 2 months ago, may be the issue? But I know its not expensive to get a new PSU just checking with one of the best community's ik.

that unit has a 5 year warranty if I recall correctly, if its faulty send it back they will replace it.
I highly doubt the SSD is the cause, the draw from an SSD, even greedy power gobbling piglet SSD's is tiny, compared to even a HDD.
