I have had a crashing issue while gaming for over 2 years now. I have replaced my processor, ram, motherboard, and GPU and the crashing still presists. I think this COULD be caused by a defective power supply at this point. While gaming, the power supply Power % in MSI Afterburn is at around 70%, is this normal? If there is any other way to tell if a PSU is going bad, please let me know! And if you have any other idea to help fix the crashing let me know. Thank you.
 
If this is what you mean, here is a full list of the parts in my computer right now. If you meant something else, let me know. Thank you!~

Your parts look really good except the cheap power supply. The 600B is an older group regulated design by HEC using cheap capacitors along with other cost cutting methods hurting its performance and reliability. It's not the worst PSU around but you could do a lot better if you're willing to spend a bit more money for a good one. The 3 year warranty on yours expired years ago.

Of course a bad power supply can cause random crashing.
Even if it is not "going bad". It might just be a crappy PSU.

But any actual advice or investigation would require a full parts list.
Make/model/size of everything.
Please be specific.
