Random Shutdown: PSU Related?

HELP HELP HELP!

So yesterday my rig (specs in sig) started randomly shutting down. At first I thought it was temperature related because one of the AP181s in my FT02 stopped working (though the other two were working and my BeQuiet DRP TR4 should have been fine). Turns out the fan just got disconnected from the header, so that wasn't the problem.

I reconnected the fan, fired up a game, and it crashed again....

OK, so now I thought it might be GPU-related, so I ran DDU in safe modeand then reinstalled the latest Nvidia driver (without GeForce Experience). Rebooted, fired up a game again, and it crashed even sooner!

After that, I tried reseting my BIOS to defaults, but now it shuts down even just on the desktop, right when I log in!

I think it might be my PSU (Enermax MaxTytan 1050W), because after it shuts down, the power and reset buttons don't do anything and I have to turn the PSU off and on before I can turn it on...

Is it possible that it's something else? If it is the PSU, how can I verify that so that I can make a warranty claim with Enermax?

Thanks-in-advance,

That problem sure does sound like a PSU issue. I vote in favour of shilka's "try another PSU" suggestion.

I pulled my old AX760i and the system runs fine (other than the fact that my Windows install got completely f'ed).

I've opened a ticket with Enermax so hopefully I'll get an RMA replacement soon.

In the meantime I want to get a replacement PSU from another brand and then flip the RMA on eBay or something.

I'm considering either the BeQuiet! Dark Power Pro 11 1000W or the Seasonic Prime 1000 Titanium, so I'd appreciate any recommendations on either.

They're both good units, I'd pick the one with the better warranty.
For the price the Enermax unit was garbage anyway, it's not bad or anything but for that kind of price I'd expect an excellent PSU with a 12 year warranty simply becasue that what the competition is offering. If not a 12 year warranty then $100 off lol

You dont need that amount of wattage sure threadripper is a power hog but if you only have a single GPU there is no need for that amount of wattage
A good 750 watt would be more than enough power even for your system

The Be Quiet by the way if you dont know already is multi rail

Does the jumper/switch thing effectively make it dual rail or single rail if you choose or is there still a difference?

It does only have a 5 year warranty though. There are certainly better PSUs out there.

Thanks for all the input! I just finished fully swapping my AX760i back into the rig. Cable management is atrocious, and the A LX's cables are barely long enough, but it never failed me for the 5 years I was running it with my 8350, so I'll probably stick with it for another 5...

I had random shutdown's when I used to do folding on a 1050hx corsair with sli gtx580's. Went back to my old psu and got the 1050hx replaced. Never folded again after that. It didn't even last 3-4 months. No random shutdowns after that. This was the newer revision of the 1050hx. The original version was not a recommend.
