Okay so while I play my my PC started randomly shutting down while in a game some examples are Counter Strike, Battlefield, and Diablo III. At first I thought maybe it was over heating but I have a gadget on my PC that tells the temps it averages while playing 40C to 60C (104-140F) so I installed some new fans there is a total of 5 in there and it's not overheating obviously. So the next thing I thought of was the power so I went out and bought a CyberPower battery backup  it still shutsdown like nothing is helping it. Something interesting is that I took the PC over to buddies and hooked it up it never shutdown like it is the house or something if you can help me please do the parts are all new except the motherboard it is 2012 everything else is 2014.

GPU: GeForce GTX 560 Ti

CPU: Intel ® Core ™ i5-4590 @ 3.30 GHz

Which is my graphics card I know my motherboard is fine because I just recently ordered it if you can give me anything to help please do because I really wanna get in my games and beable to play with no problem. It randomly restarts which really makes me sad :/

If shutting down, does you cpu turn off too?

It might be a OS problem, try installing every update available :)

 Perhaps you need more than a battery backup, you may need a constant, conditioned power supply.

 

If the system works at someone else's place and not at yours, then it sure sounds like something to do with your home mains power.



I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
