Hey guys.


I have a problem where my PC shuts off while gaming. It mainly happens when playing League of Legends (LoL) or MW3.


My rig is


Maximus V ASUS motherboard

Nvidia Gigabyte 670 GTi graphics card

Intel i7 4th generation processor


I read in a separate forum that I should make a "Who's Crashed" report and I did. It can be found at the following link.




Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks! :D

Yeah it sounds like an overheating or PSU issue.

I second the overheating.  You may be able to set an alert if your CPU/GPU passes a certain temp (like a sound or a screen flash) to help realize that's what it is, but this is the obvious problem.  My quick and dirty $0.02 is better thermal paste (on both the CPU and GPU) and better cooling.  Personally I've dropped temps by 20 degrees C using IC diamond paste but even so with a 670 Titan you'll need some good air cooling (at least).  Also you might run something like GPU-Z or other temp monitor software overlayed on top so you can see it overheat that way also (in case you're doubting that's the problem.)


Could be an underpowered or underregulated PSU, but I'd bet on the temps first.

yes i agree with these guys its an overheating issuse had the same problem myself try installing a fan in it. also where is the pc positioned make sure it has good air flow so its not shoved against the wall, also check inside the case and brush out and also blow out any dust as this will be a insulator for the heat
