Computer randomly shutting off and not responding until after a few minutes

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm kind of at my wits end at trying to figure out whats going on with my recently new machine here

specs:
core i5 6600k on corsair H105
asus z170 ar
16gb ram 3000mhz crucial balistix 1.35v
2x gtx 970 asus srtkex
500gb ssd m.2 samsung evo
3 wd 1tb raid 5
EVGA Supernova g2 1300w PSU (bought this used off of a fellow miner i was told it was a year old)





1st occurence was playing shadow of mordor for about 2-3 hours and then the computer just would randomly shut down
after shutdown powerbutton would not respond i see power LED's on the video cards still lit up
mobo doesn't have any status led's for power so i can only go off the video cards....... 4 minutes later, i hear the computer power up and post and it's booted up again


streaming videos, and web surfing it's completely stable for the entire weekend

2nd occurence, was installing repack of a recent game size was about 30gb's , during install computer shutdowns down again, no response
disconnected power cable from PSU, waited 2 mins put back in, power button still unresponsive, few minutes later, it decides to power back on

3rd occurence , decided to go into bios/UEFI to check if maybe it's because of the ram since i recently replaced that since i had it running in XMP profile , right before i could set it on AUTO
computer reboots and posts , i got into UEFI and set the ram to Auto, didn't help as i got another power out shortly when i loaded a benchmark program to confirm i wasn't running into any heating issues (seeing 32-36C CPU , GPU didn't go past 70C , Mobo temps 43C)




just trying to get some input and feed back to confirm my suspicions

Not enough information,

Have you monitored volts and temps?
Have you checked Windows Event Viewer?


You need to do some troubleshooting...........

did some already before posting as i said previously temps are fine
I've also logged this and confirmed it with an infrared gun just incase i may have had a hot spot

event viewer only shows unexpected shutdown or power outage

replacing with a corsair unit and awaiting for crash
