Hello I made my own computer within the last 6 months and Ive only recently ran into an issue during gaming where it would power off unexpectedly. No warning no blue screens it just shuts off.

Go to the start button, click on search, type in event viewer.exe click on it.
Now click on the windows logs folder, then double click on system.
If you see any red x errors, click on one of them and view the detail tab.

Example will look something like this:
File System Filter 'wcifs' (Version 10.0, ‎2016‎-‎09‎-‎15T11:42:03.000000000Z) failed to attach to volume '\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy7'. The filter returned a non-standard final status of 0xC000000D. This filter and/or its supporting applications should handle this condition. If this condition persists, contact the vendor.

I would guess your power supply is going bad. Raid max doesn't make m/any good quality power supplies. Try replacing it with another unit and test again. Check the tom's hardware PSU tier list for good PSUs. You ideally want above tier 3. I didn't notice that this was over a month old but if you still have this problem then you can try this.
