    So I recently built myself a gaming pc, I followed the instructions perfectly and everything but as soon as I tried to play games my pc would either crash to the desktop or my display would lose signal but the pc would still have power. The games would crash at different times, sometimes id be able to get through a game or two of pubg but I never got through a session without it crashing atleast once.

    My Specs are as follows:
    MSI Radeon RX 570 Gaming X 4GB
    AMD Ryzen 3 1300x
    MSI A320M Gaming Pro Motherboard
    600W EZCOOL power supply
    8GB of RAM (2x4GB)

    If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

    Do you have any program monitoring your component's temperatures? If not download yourself one and see if this is temperature related (CPU or GPU).
    Either it's temperature or your PSU is indeed a budget one and doesn't really bring the power it's supposed to bring.
    Is there any error message when crashing? A crash dump? Does the PC restart after it crashed?

    Is this your PSU? If so it should be fine.

    fantaskarsef gave some good advice. Follow them.

    I just mentioned the PSU because it either sounds like PSU giving up, or temps going too high. Unfortunately I have never bought an EZCOOL PSU, do you have experience with that brand Ryu?

    Well PSU would be my bet, just look amperage for 3.3V&5V those are good only for P3 systems but they were sold for P4 and people bought them because they didn't had clue how P4 and up uses 12V for cpu+gpu well just try another psu from some friend,

    So I have had MSI afterburner installed but have never really seen any ridiculous temps although when I just tried playing a game the game crashed again, the temps got upto about 60C and as for the power supply I had it connected to a brand new corsair CX450 (450W) when the problems first strated occurring but i took my pc into a computer store and they thought it was PSU so they lent me the EZCOOL PSU 600W to see how that went but the results have not improved. When I have been running games I haven't noticed any significate temperatures. So I'm not sure.

    So what would be your recommendation for a replacement PSU?

    I didn't know you tried 2 different PSU-s so it seems it can be GPU in this case try some other GPU or try that GPU in other PC, and i hope it's not case were 2 PSU are bad :)

    Yes that doesn't sound like a faulty PSU then if you tried two of them. Also, 60°C on the GPU is not an issue.
    Did you check CPU temp also? I know this might sound stupid, but did you check all the cables in your PC, if everything's connected? My first PC I ever had was restarting because the manufacturer forgot to connect the CPU fan...

    Yeah so everything is connected right, how would you go about checking the cpu temp?

    Tbh 24A and 28A for 3.3v and 5v should be enough. Just going by checking other similar known brands having 24A and 24A on those like Corsair AX860i 860W having 25A and 25A. And then he has 50A on the 12V lines.

    You may not have setup the CPU properly in regards to cooling. Many new builders will put too much thermal paste, or not properly apply it, causing the CPU to overheat when stressed. What CPU cooler are you using, and what thermal paste? If it's Arctic Silver 5, or something similar, it's very easy to not apply that right.

    Check temps with hwinfo 64

    But firstly replace that junk power supply.
    That ezcool is 10 years old and it was rated top tier junk back then.

    What's your budget?
    I honestly would leave the PC alone until you replace it with a proper one..

    Here is an excellent modular budget PSU.
    550w is plenty for your setup, but if you want 650w it's about $13 more

    Your old PSU could have also been junk too so replacing it with another junk PSU won't solve anything.

    ok so get a better power supply. For the CPU cooler is the stock wraith spire atm I'm currently saving to purchase a new cooler but I should be able to fit a new psu into that budget aswell.

    This is always a thing that could happen, but honestly, this...


    Was my first guess, if temps are working out fine on the CPU end.
    Did you check those temps with hwinfo64? It's free, a small download, and writes logs iirc, so you can check what happened with the temps after a restart.

    The CPU cooling came to mind since I saw this was a new setup, so I figured this system has not gone through all the paces yet. I would certainly monitor the CPU temps while gaming or stress test to see if it's the cause. If not, then I'd start looking at the PSU replacement.

    I would also test the video card in another system if possible, just to eliminate the possibility.

    I upgraded my PSU to no success and then ive ran the hwinfo64 test but I have no idea how to understand what I'm looking for...
