When is it shutting down?

While this PSU is enough quality and certainly enough wattage for most builds, the EVGA G5s are, unfortunately, FSP-made PSUs for which they use cheaper active-clamp reset forward topology rather than something better. Lots of people had had crashing problems when using high-end 30 series GPUs with these types of PSUs because the power spikes in those GPUs, which those cost-cutting PSUs can't manage.

What PSU would you recommend?

Something like a Corsair RMX. It may not be the problem, though. Are you getting crashes at idle?
No crashes at idle, but no crashes during gaming either. I'm usually crashing when Im either streaming with obs or streaming with a website called streamyard. THose are the only ones for sure, but I can game for hours with no shutdown.
