This issue had been worrying me since 4-5 years. When i play a game or render avideo my computer freezes after sometime idk why??
First i thought ram is the reason behind this. So i bought a new ram but still the same problem happened.
Then i bought a new gpu i.e. gt 1030 but still same thing happened
Then i thought it was happening because of my cpu(g2020) so i bought core i5 3570
But still same problem
The only suspects left are my mobo,psu,hdd
This is my rig:
Asus h61m-k
I5 3570
Gt 1030
Toshiba 500gb hdd
6gb ddr 3 ram 1333mhz
Psu:intex 450 20+4 pin sata
I think my psu is the culprit
Please tell me if there is anything to do??

thanks for the opinion bro
I will look forward to it
Ok so about corsair. The vs series is an old platform that is why it is not suggested, because it doesn't perform as well as the cx or the even more expensive sf series. The vs450 psu will be more than enough for your system, don't return it now you can even put a 1050 ti on it. The sf450 can even run a 1080. It is all about quality. However of you are planning to connect any gpu that requires more than 90 or maybe 120w then I'd definitely suggest an upgrade. For now keep the vs 450. Btw I'm running a 1060 off a cx450 that's why I suggested you that one. If this psu solves the issue than well done if not than you need further "investigation". Anyways keep us updated

Hello,
I doubt your psu would be the problem, probably because your system has a very low tdp with that 1030. It is probably a dying hdd. I've been experiencing the same issue with my 500gb hdd. Then I checked the condition with hard disk sentinel and it said it is on 79%. Then I vhanged the hard drive and my problems were gone. I advise you to download hard disk sentinel and check if the hdd is the issue.

DON'T get the vs450. It is a bad psu. If you are looking for corsair budget yet good quality get cx series or you can go with evga br series, and you can also get fsp hexa+ psu. But even if it is not the psu causing the issue you should get a new 80+ one, just in case you plan on further upgrading. I don't think it is the mobo cuz you'd have other issues than games freezing.

Sorry, not considered good.
Tier 5 on this list:

There have to be better choices if you are buying new.

BUt bro i think it will be enough for my rig
And it gives a good performance to price ratio
 
You asked for an opinion; I gave you mine.
Corsair is not considered as a dangerous PSU, one that will damage other parts if it fails.
And... Corsair is very good with replacing Power supplies that fail under warranty, I have had to return two CX430 units in the past.
The rap on the VS units is that they are more failure prone.

Ok so about corsair. The vs series is an old platform that is why it is not suggested, because it doesn't perform as well as the cx or the even more expensive sf series. The vs450 psu will be more than enough for your system, don't return it now you can even put a 1050 ti on it. The sf450 can even run a 1080. It is all about quality. However of you are planning to connect any gpu that requires more than 90 or maybe 120w then I'd definitely suggest an upgrade. For now keep the vs 450. Btw I'm running a 1060 off a cx450 that's why I suggested you that one. If this psu solves the issue than well done if not than you need further "investigation". Anyways keep us updated

Your PSU is trash, replace it immediately. Don't push it in the meantime. Invest in an EVGA 450BR or a Corsair CX450.

If anyone is reading this thread, than it turned out after long troubleshooting that the problem was with a corrupt old 2gb ram stick.
