I recently built a budget gaming machine to play Skyrim and some MMOs I was on a pretty tight budget so I shouldn't be surprised this happened.. but at any rate when I play Skyrim the computer literally just shuts off after a certain amount of time. No rhyme or reason at all nothing indicates it is going to happen it just shuts off. I actively watched the temperatures and everything seems absolutely stable nothing goes above 55degrees celcius. I did NOT skimp on the cooling system. This doesn't seem to occur on any of my MMOs however they are MUCH less intensive than Skyrim. 
 
Mobo 28 to 30 degrees
Videocard 55 degrees
CPU 55 to 57 degrees 
 
here are my components
 
Power Supply = KINGWIN ABT-650MM 650W
CPU = AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz 6 core
Mobo = ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS
Video = SAPPHIRE 100358L Radeon HD 7770
RAM = G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1866
HDD = SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST250DM001 / HD253GJ 250GB 
OS = Windows 7 64bit
 
I have a feeling I shouldn't have skimped on the power supply, but I wanted to get some opinions from people smarter than me before I go to get another.  I also think its important to note that after it shuts down I can't turn it back on for several minutes.  Thank you so much for your time.

I have updated all drivers

There is no blue screen or restart it just shuts off completely as if someone pulled the plug.

Attempted putting a giant fan up to the open case and this did seem to allow me to play a little longer but could have been coincidence (temps were the same my cooling/air flow is great)

 

The only thing I got from the event log is - The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly. Unless I am looking at the wrong thing.. which is possible.

Also I get this Microsoft-Windows-Setup" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D I don't know if thats related

Your CPU temperature is reaching near the maximum temperature and it shuts down when it reaches that limit to prevent damage. Have you overclocked your CPU and what CPU cooler are you using?

no overclock and its the stock cooler with better thermal paste. I didn't think that 57 degrees was all that hot but its been a long time.

I'd also like to add that the computer will not come back on unless I unplug it for a while. Do you think I need a new cooler for my CPU?

A new CPU cooler may fix the problem  but there is a slight chance that it could also the power supply. How long does it last before shutting down and is the shutting down time consistent?

It is pretty inconsistent but not long ago it did it again while the CPU was at 54 degrees. The CPU does warm up a lot faster than I feel like it should  is it normal for the computer to shut down when it gets close to 60?

 

if I tab out and back in every few minutes it seems to extend it but on the same token it could be as fast as one minute into gaming or it could be twenty minutes. Sometimes it does it when i'm just standing around doing nothing in particular and other times it does it when a lot of stuff is going on and pushing the computer harder.

 

Its literally like someone pulls the plug from behind the computer and I have to unplug it for about a minute before I can turn it back on. I also heard it could be my motherboard - i'm so confused :o Thank you for responding I really appreciate the help!

Hmm, can you still return the power supply?

 

Edit: After a bit of reading on the current power supply you have, it's a low-grade power supply and based on user reviews, it is either you get one that works for a bit or blow up.

makes sense everything seemed fine the first day.

 

It just shut off while the CPU was at 50degrees (i moved stuff around repasted it so it wasn't a total waste) So I think its safe to assume its not that. I'll get a new power supply and I wont try to cheap on it. Do you have any suggestions for a decent one with my rig? Whats a good brand now? Everything has changed since the last time I built a computer for Everquest =p (I'm an old fart)

What is your budget for the power supply?
