Hi,

I'm having a problem with my computer and hoping someone here could help me. Basically when I am playing certain games, particularly LoL and FF14, my computer will instantly cut off and then restart itself. I am not sure why it is these games particularly but more graphically intense games I have played do not cause my PC to shut off. It's happening every 20-30 minutes now and I need a solution. After googling the problem the most common suggestion is an issue with the PSU. I have cleaned the PC with a can of compressed air and made sure all the fans are dust free. I checked my PSU and it is 550W which is more than sufficient for a GTX 1080 from the recommendations I googled online. I'm not sure what else to do, I can't really afford to buy a new PSU unless I can be sure that's the issue. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I will paste my specs below, apologies if I have missed anything, i'm not tech savvy at all.

My specs are:

Have you checked the temperature of the GPU and CPU? Play the game for just 15 minutes and quit it, then check the temperature under Task Manager

Depending on how intensive the game is, it will heat up components eventually

So I ended up buying a new PSU - Corsair CX750F RGB, 80 PLUS Bronze Fully Modular ATX Power Supply. My PC is still rebooting itself even with the games on their lowest setting, What else could it be if not the PSU?
