Try first your Rig, I mean, stable: CPU, RAM, PSU
Turn on the PC but won't boot into SO, enter bios or pause boot and wait for PC crash.
If it still powered, then test CPU, NO-OC, Low-END VGA if possible, and checking temps.
If test is sucess, then it should be the PSU, Carefully Oc the CPU, GPU, and stress the PSU.
If still working, then check PSU power Cable.
Loveya Chitti Broski. :3
Brotha'. BIOS test: failed, temps between 30-50 (processor), 40-45 (low end gpu); passed. OC'd cpu, gpu, ran Prime95 and stressed for about 2 hours, no fail. Few hours later, happened again. Tried with 2 PSU cables, it happens.

4+1, my mistake.... VRMs are probably not the issue
Good to know that.

im not challenging anyone here just an innocent question
Maybe just cause of the sudden shutdown.. but idk, PC is still on, everything inside case is still working.. idk if it is the PSU..

Yep, i did a total reset of everything when removed the battery, and my mobo has a RESET CMOS button in the back, pressed it too.

Maybe was just bad luck.. Daamn im afraid.. i dont think i can buy another hgih-wattage and good-brand PSU lol..
