Its a no name unit and its only rated for 40c i dont have to look more into it to tell you its not very good

Probably Golden Tiger or another OEM like that made it but since there is zero info on OEM i am going to call it a no name junker

No you should not keep it my experience tells me its no name thats not very good and thats the nice way of saying no name junker

Pretty sure it cant do 630 watts

Even if its not the problem you should not keep it

Could end up frying your whole PC

I will back this guy up. Plus has 5 flames and is our resident psu guru.

I also could not find any info on this unit either, but judging by the small handful of reviews from the same company, I would throw it in the garbage. selling it or giving it to someone else is like handing them a live grenade to put in their computer.

Edit:

I just found the manufacture IS XION. The unit is a certification-less Super-flower which is usually promising in one way or another.

The fact that you could not power on the pc after the shutdown points towards the PSU being the problem.

The cleaning effort may have helped slow down the problem occurring again, but I would not wait to find out.

@shilka's advice should be taken seriously, he knows his stuff wink.gif

Temps look good, I would back up the replacing that PSU. If your PC is shutting off its due to a temperature problem on a part most likely, and that being this low end rated PSU. It cant handle the load that gets put on it from your other components especially when gaming. This PSU may be okay for normal usage but not high loads on it.

OCP/OTP/OVP may be kicking in which is good at least in proves that it works and not just goes kaboom bye bye PSU/PC

Still you should not keep it if it does that

Even if its an old Super Flower its still broken if its shuts off due to OCP/OTP/OVP kicking in

I did some research on the PSU myself. This is what the exact label looks like. I agree that information about it is scarce, however I stumbled upon a comparative review from a renowned Swedish website (SweClockers) that included its 500W little brother. From the pictures of the circuit I can't tell the difference from mine, so it should be somewhat representative despite the lower wattage. The review was generally positive, and it was praised for having exceptional ripple values (whatever that is).

However there seem to be a consensus here that the quality of my PSU is questionable, and that even if it's not guilty of causing the exact symptoms I've described, I'm better off with a new one. I accept this, but I don't find it convincing enough to discontinue the investigation. I'm still open for alternative explanations.

That was my first thought too, however I believe the motherboard should be capable of producing the same result, and I find it more likely that the motherboard contains such security mechanism than the PSU. So in the end the problem may also be caused by anything connected to the motherboard.

My PSU is an AXP-630P12P (630W), so lack of power should not be the problem unless it's broken.
Also, what temperatures are we talking about when you say your GPU went into "overdrive"?
I worked my way through the device manager tree using "Search automatically for updated driver software" and everything was reportedly up to date. Is this a reliable method?

I haven't really messed with any BIOS settings besides booting devices.

I'm glad the video helped you out.

I used the word "overdrive" to simply describe that Battlefield 4 pushes my rig (i.e. my GPU fans speeds up), BF is a demanding game. Sorry for the confusion.

Personally, I don't recommend changing your BIOS settings as it seems to me the issue is probably with your PSU (I agree with the rest of the guys here)

Alright I just had another shutdown last night, and I've come to terms with the fact that I should replace my PSU.

My build requires at least 340W according to an online calculator. My chassi is pretty much standard size for a tower chassi. I don't really need modular connectors.

After a brief search online the XFX Core Edition P1-550S-XXB9 (550W) seam to stand out as a quality PSU at a reasonable price. Are there any alternatives within the same price range that are superior quality-wise?

Its a rebranded Seasonic S12II so unless you can find an S12II or M12II that are cheaper then no you wont find much that are better in that price range

I think the unit you've found is a good one; you'll get 3 to 5 year warranty, and in my opinion I think XFX is a pretty good brand with great customer service and support (I had an XFX video card a few years ago, had to call their support center and had no problems getting the support I was looking for). So, my 2 cents: go for it.

That being said, I believe the best person here is to provide you a solid recommendation is Shilka - I'd follow his suggestion thumb.gif
