I’ve had my PC for about a year now and prior to this issue have never had any issues. The PC will randomly shut off during games (happen one time without a game) as if the plug has been pulled. The issue is not however anything to do with software, as I Re-formatted my windows yesterday when the crashing began.

PC SPECS
CPU: 8350 AMD @ 4.0 (Underclocked from 5 after crashing started)
RAM: 16GB DDR3
MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3
GPU: 7970 sapphire @ 925
PSU: 750W corsair

I don’t think it’s a heating problem as I have watercooling and my idle temps are
CPU: 12C
GPU: 32C
MOTHERBOARD: 31C

Under Full Load
CPU: 35C
GPU: 60C
MOTHERBOARD: 37C


Any ideas what the problem could be?

Is the only solution to this problem to get a new PSU?
