Still Need HELP PC Restarts When Playing Games - Page 2

So i tested my psu and the 12v is sitting at 12.15 the entire time under load, so the psu should be good. Also i let a different game run for longer and it happened with that game also. I have no idea what is wrong with this.

Another game triggered the black screen/shutdown, you're saying?

I was running netflix and another game (a very low graphics intensive game) for about 40 minutes when it happened again. I downloaded activeSMART and it says my hard drive is good so that crosses that possibility out. I am really confused as I have no knowledge of any other part of my system that could be faulty

PSU/motherboard are two of the more common causes for random shutoffs.
I see you have a custom desk setup, could you be losing ground somewhere?

What would cause losing ground?

I'm not sure how your custom desk mounts the motherboard, PSU, etc. and intermittent/unexplained power-offs can sometimes be fixed by finding shorts due to stand offs,etc.

I have the standoffs screwed directly into the wood, when i did my research i found that it was fine to do that. One of the standoffs wouldnt stay in the hole so i tried to superglue it in but it didnt work so that part just sticks up a bit

I dont think that would cause the problem, would there be anything else?
