First i have a 700w rocketfish psu.
FX-8350 cpu
HD7870
8 GB Ram
Asus M5A97 motherboard

After playing skyrim for about a half hour on ultra high settings the power will randomly cut off. It is not due to cpu or the video card overheating(I monitor it like crazy). When i try to turn it back on the power button wont work. After i flip the switch on and off on the back off the psu the psu fan kicks on for a couple of seconds and then i can turn the computer back on.
AM i overloading the supply or am i ready for a new one? The supply is from my old computer and about 6 years old. Would appreciate any help.

Rocketfish PSU'S are poor.You need a new one.Change it before you damage the other components.

Tier 5 - Other than the units listed above for any of these brands, NOT RECOMMENDED.
Replace ASAP if you have one.
