Computer shutdowns after 5-6 hours of gaming

Hello,

My desktop computer suddenly shutdowns after heavy gaming sessions of about 5-6 hours, when that occurs the BIOS POST shows a message saying "Asus detected multiple power surges when previously on, Asus Anti Surge turned it off to protect system" (or something really similar).

After it happens, I can boot the machine and start the game again: however it will shutdown again really quick, in less of 3 min of gameplay.

My main suspicion is that the PSU is somehow overheating, but an OCCT power supply stress test does not trigger this (at least in a span of almost 3 hours), but I am considering as well that it possibly may be the CPU overheating, although temps dont seem high after the shutdown even if I watch them really quick in the BIOS monitor.

This has never happened before until a few days ago, I will include some OCCT graphs as it may be of help to solve the issue.

My PSU model is Aerocool Templarius Imperator 850W and I think I have it since 3-4 years ago aprox (I think it's important to mention that it does only happen after 5-6 hours of gaming heavy use) and my CPU is an Intel i7-6700K

Thanks in advance, the main reason of asking is because I don't know if I should replace the PSU for a new one or lower my CPU temps.

Your PSU is made by Andyson which is usually not a good sign but with no reviews there is no way to know how bad it is
Probably not a great PSU and the 12v rail is only rated for 744 watts so its not even an 850 watt

As for Asus Anti-surge

I tried disabling Asus Anti-Surge but now instead of rebooting my computer freezes, so maybe it really is the PSU fault? Is there any way to try it without expensive equipment?

PD: Thanks for the quick reply, I took me a while to answer because my account was somehow deactivated and I wasn't getting my activation mail

Considering it's a bad PSU anyway it couldn't hurt to replace it anyway. If I had to guess the extended gaming load is making the PSU hot then it's still hot when you reboot.
I'd replace it even if it wasn't giving me issues, I picked a crap PSU the first time around and never had any issues with it. Since replacing it my CPU is stable with lower voltage and my 12, 5 and 3v rails always read exactly what they're supposed to when idle and under load.
A better PSU is always a win IMO.

Buy a better PSU it might cost a lot but a crappy PSU that has damaged or fried your PC will cost more
You dont need to buy a 750-850 watt PSU unless you have an SLI or Crossfire setup its way overkill wattage wise and a good 550 watt is almost always more than enough

The Seasonic Foucs Plus and Seasonic Prime Ultra series are both good options

And again you dont need more then 650 watts at most unless you have two video cards or you are messing around with volt mods or extreme cooling
Buy a quality unit not the one with the most wattage for the lowest price
