I built a PC on Saturday 28th October, and it worked perfectly fine until today. I started a game and pc shut down completely. I tried investigating myself, and found out that psu fan is not spinning and making weird whirring noise when playing games. Help please

 

my PSU - Corsair - RMx 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

is it shutting down or rebooting? big difference between the two.

 

if it's shutting down the only thing you have to check is your PSU

 

if it's rebooting, go to system settings, start up and recovery, error reporting, uncheck "reboot on critical failure" and see what happens. if you're getting a BSOD it's either a hardware issue with one of the components or driver conflict.

 

while you're playing for 5-10 minutes, is the fps stable? no stuttering of any sort?

does windows crash if you're not gaming?
