Recently my computer started to power itself off randomly. I checked event viewer and this is the error message: "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."

Naturally, I checked the power options to see if it was anything in there, since this appears to only happen when the computer is idle. This has never happened while using it! All those settings are in check. My overclock is pretty mild right now and is my next tinkering project, but it's been stable and temps are fine.

Only idea I have left is a bad PSU, but I think it's strange that it only happens when I'm not using it...

Yeah thats a CX

Its a cheap entry level PSU meant for office and media PC and other low end stuff

It does not really belong in any mid or high end PC

It could be the problem but then again i cant tell you that for sure

Even if its not the problem i still think you sould replace it as said its not very good

But what I'm trying to understand is why the PSU would only fail when the PC is idle? What's not good about it, and what would cause it to fail when the PC is idle?

I have no idea if its really the PSU or not

All i know is its a cheap CWT made PSU with ONE japanese capacitor a panasonic one but only rated at 85c not 105c like the high end ones

The rest of the capacitors are cheap taiwanese and chinese capacitors
