Good day everyone, I want to overclock my RAM to 2133 Mhz (currently at 1600 Mhz) everytime I try to overclock it any further my PC Shuts down, it seems that my PSU is the problem, so now I would like to ask if it would be possible to do that with a new PSU and which one would you recommend to me?

GPU:Nvidia GTX 770
CPU:Intel i7-3770K (currently OC to 4.3 GHz)
Mobo:Intel DZ77GA-70K
PSU:Combat Power 750W (Its a really cheap one I shouldnt have bought it)
RAM:GSkill RipJawsX (Red) 2133 Mhz

I honestly doubt it is your PSU. It is more than likely your motherboard that is giving you the issue. By shutting down do you mean windows actually shuts down or do you get a BSOD or just a complete loss of power to your system?

It shuts down completly, restarts itself and shuts down again but after the 3rd time I can enter my Bios to set the settings to default and boot normal

your system is quite power hungry and you should consider changing to another quality psu unit since also have it overclocked. even the unit is bad, it is unlike power failure to be hapening due to ram tweaking as mentioned erlier.there is a chance though this happening due top unstable voltages.try a bios reading to ensure they are within acceptable range. if your ram is rated as 2133mhz best way is to enable xmp which will enable automatically the best possible ram settings.manually though,except speed also must change cl and even voltage accordingly!(as specs specify).

Do you have the latest BIOS? I not update that, then if it's 2133 RipjawsX, simply go into BIOS and enable XMP and select profile 1 - if any problems let me know the exact model 3 and how much total DRAM

I tried it with that profile and I could boot without failure can I check anywhere that its activate now/or improvements to 1600 Mhz?:)

Get CPU-Z (free utility program) and look in the Memory tab, it will show true freq or about half of what you are running, for 2133 it should show about 1066 as this is DDR (DOUBLE data rate)
