Hello, I've been struggling with this issue since late December when I got DayZ and have not found a solution. I first started noticing it when I was playing the DayZ Stand Alone randomly without a warning or blue screen. All of my components shut off and after 3 seconds Everything turns back on and it asks me if I would like to run windows normally or in safe mode. So after many unexpected shut downs I've tried to conclude that it was my power supply but I would like to receive some insight before I buy another PSU.

Specs:
Corsair HX750
MSI Z77A-G45 Gaming
EVGA GTX 780 SC
Intel i5 2500k
G. Skill ripjaws x 4x4 16gb
Toshiba 128 gb SSD
Intel 335 series 80gb SSD
Corsair H80i

Check if your processor or GPU gets heated up. This usually happens bec of over heating as well

Neither the CPU or GPU is running hot the CPU under load usually runs at 40 degrees Celsius max and the GPU 65 degrees Celsius max.

That's a good PSU but would be the first thing I'd try replacing.

Then it could be faulty PSU, HX is actually good, replace it don't change it

Yup that is the best you can do ^_^ You will not get a very good modular PSU in this range and not with gold rating
