Question PC shuts down by itself


Jul 10, 2019
Hi, i built a system with an rx 5600xt and a ryzen 5 3600. After installing windows i was experiencing BSODs and immediate shutdowns. I thought it was the psu so i swapped the psu and it was still happening. So i heard that it could be the rx 5600xt because of bad drivers. So i ended up swapping the gpu for an rx 5700xt. The issue still remained so i ended up returning the mobo, cpu as well as the ram.
I then ordered the aorus b450i pro wifi and now im having still having instant shutdown problem.

Original specs
Msi b450i ac mini itx mobo
Crucial 16gb 3200mhz ram
Ryzen 5 3600
Nzxt h210i mini itx

New specs
Aorus b450i pro wifi
Same ram
Same cpu
Same gpu (5700xt)
Corsair CX 600 psu
Same case

Now i unplugged the nzxt smart device v2 from the psu. Ans so far ive got valley benchmark running and its not turned off yet.

Could it have been the nzxt smart device the whole time!!!???
