Hello everyone. I'm new here.

Issue: Computer shuts down spontaneously (sometimes I can play graphic intensive games and its fine, other times I'm browsing the internet and it goes down) No time limit that I can see. Fans continue to spin. Power buttons unresponsive (yes even if I hold down the power button) I have to flip the power switch on the PSU off.

Possible causes: It's a brand new computer (I'm fretting I borked something when I put it together) but I was using the video card in my old computer along with the power supply with no issues. So I suspect the motherboard. I checked the temperatures and motherboard and CPU seem to stay at 40C or less. Video card gets up to 55ish.

1000W PSU

Attaching a screenshot of the even log from the last crash. I'm also getting error 6008 just before it shuts down. The error log screen shot is from after error 41 (your computer was shut down improperly) but 6008 happens before the 41.

I appreciate any help you can give, I'm hoping its some sort of driver issue and not hardware but my hopes aren't too high.

<<So I suspect the motherboard.>>

That was in your initial post.

There is no error message generated anywhere on the system...that's going to scream "motherboard" at a user...none that I'm aware of, anyway.

If you suspect the motherboard, the only way to validate/refute such...is to try a different board in the system...or try that mogherboard in an otherwise known-good system.
