It's possible that your PSU is dying on you, consider buying a slightly higher quality PSU so it will last you longer.

But my consumption considered is around 310W, and the PSU can deliver that easly. But how can I test the PSU? any way?

Cheap PSUs degrade in performance much faster than higher-quality PSUs. For you to buy a PSU testing tool would be less economical than for you to just buy a new one.

Antec Neo Eco's are by no means low-quality, so it's likely you just got a defective unit. Stop trying to use your computer as you may end up damaging components (if you haven't already) by having them trying to feed off a faulty power supply. Replace the unit ASAP.

You think it is the PSU that is making my PC turn off? Even at the BIOS would it turn off?
