I hope you're not. :( After what Bartouille said and after what we just tried (not 100% sure if we tried everything, but still), I don't know what else it could be. With an i5-3570K at 4.2 GHz and the GTX 970 at stock, your power consumption is barely breaking 350W. At the worst, it could be 400W.

Same thing just happened to me on my 1.5 year old HX850 that I used in my spare rig. The computer would get used like once a month when a friend came over and forgot their laptop, the power supply went unused for a good 3 months after I moved to a new home and it started having issues this weekend after freshly installing windows on it.

Power would just cut in the middle of CS:GO and the PC wouldn't boot until the power supply had the button flipped. I thought maybe it was overheating, gpu, RAM maybe dirty power from the outlet, certainly not a barely used HX850.

It never crashed during a prime95 stress test, only video related things. (prime95 just didn't draw enough power). I even ran an extension cable to the other end of the home to see if it was on maybe a bad circuit/outlet.

I ended up swapping the PSU for an old XFX 750w and the issues disappeared. Corsair probably had a bad batch of HXs we got.

I swapped my GPU out for a 750 Ti. Successfully played Skyrim for about an hour without it crashing. I would rather the problem be my 970 quite honestly. But there's no way I can prove this to my knowledge. It played like a charm for over a month...

I guess I should ask the question I still have differently: Is there any chance my 970 was causing my system to reboot during gaming? I've tried old a new drivers, and it didnt start happening until about 3 days ago.

This is a little different. I don't have to reset the switch on my PSU. It simply restarts right away.

I hate to ask, but do you have a Best Buy closer to you than Micro Center?

Yes. Significantly closer. Do you recommend I pickup whatever ~500W I can find and see if my 970 will run with the test PSU installed?

A good PSU, but yeah since you should be able to return it hassle-free after testing it and maybe using it for a short time (like, less than 14 days). Hopefully.
