PC turns off while playing games

My PC shuts off like there is a power cut after starting a game. 1-5 Minutes after starting the game the computer will turn off. Also the computer is fine to watch videos except for playing games.
I replaced my case, motherboard, cpu and ram - reinstalled windows and still I have the same problem. Before I made these changes the computer would not turn on unless unplugged and then plugged back in again but now the computer restarts after a second or so.

  2. Computer turning off is typically PSU or thermal related.

    Try swaping PSUs

    Did you apply new thermal paste when moving CPU?
  3. I reapplied thermal paste, replugged in all cables but still the same thing. I guess it must just be my power supply. I'll try replace that. Thanks
