Hi, so basically my PC has been crashing at random times lately (GPU fan spins 100% and there's no display, but there is still audio out)

It happens when I started a few games like AC II, AC Syndicate, ETS 2, and other silly programs like just opening Steam profile tab and a chrome site.

This issue has became frequent this last 2 months and I've tried reapplying thermal paste, reinstalling the latest driver, and changing the PSU cables connecting to the GPU..

The problem is I ran FurMark for about 20 minutes without any issue, is this simply power spike issue that the old PSU cannot handle or the GPU just dying?

Specs:
  • Intel Core i7 4770K stock
  • MSI H87 G43 Gaming
  • 16GB RAM
  • GTX 770 reference
  • FSP Aurum Gold 650W (maybe this is the problem)
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

[EDIT] So I have solved the issue just by setting up GPU power limit to 90% in MSI Afterburner. Is this issue commonly related to the PSU?
