Hey, recently my PC has been instantly going black and shutting down, on both occasions while playing Valorant. The first instance was the other day when it instantly shutdown randomly, and a second time today where I was freezing for 3-5s periodically in game, then it eventually just went black and restarted itself. Where should I look to find the issue? How can I tell if my psu has started to fail? Thanks in advance

I should be OK with wattage, as I've had this spec PC for years with no power issues. And temps are not an issue, my CPU rarely goes over 60c
