So ive been playing apex legends for a while but never was able to play it on high settings due to my cpu overheating , now that i fixed this problem by buying a very good cooler for it i thought i was able to run it on high settings but for some reasons my pc keeps crashing after like 40–60mins of playing the game (same happens when i play other games on high settings) my settup should be able to run it tho so neither the cpu nor the gpu is overheating. I thought it crashes due to my Power supply being deficiant but shouldnt be a 600W power supply enough?im playing on 120Hz (FPS) btw . it seems like i dont have the problem when i play on 60hz..

My setup:
Graphics card: Nvidia GTX 1080ti
Cpu : AMD Ryzen 7 3700x
RAM: 16GB
Power supply : Be quiet Pure Power 11 (600W)

I have a friend whos got almost the same setup and hes not having problems at all but hes sayin tht 600w could be a bit critical ( he got 650) but in all the videos i watched and the calculators i used they said like 400-500 should be enough...

600W is enough per se, but this PSU is multi-rail and has lower than total capacity per two 12V rails, so you're tripping it's protection with your high-end GPU. Try connecting the GPU with two cables from different 12V rails, i.e PCIe 1+3 or 2+4.

If your having to unplug the power supply from the wall to get the PC to turn back on then its tripping the power supply safety.
