As in a hard shutdown to a power off state? It would be exceptionally unusual for any kind of program to force a hard shutdown. A BSOD and reboot... sure. Power off usually means there is a power supply issue, either the PSU or the motherboard. This is always a hard one to troubleshoot.


I am not sure why the install of iCUE would trigger this, but one way to start ruling things out is to disconnect the communication cable from the AX860i PSU to the board (and severing it from Link/iCUE). If somehow the program is having a negative effect on the PSU through some sort of control error, this should prevent that.


If it's still happening after, then you need to start looking at PSU and mobo connections. If you are actually on Windows 10 1809, then that may play a part and this could be a difficult process.
