PC Crashes - CSGO / FurMark

Hello all, I have a build which is about a year and three months old.

MSI Gaming 5 - MOBO
Intel i5-4590 @ 3.30GHz w/ stock cooler - CPU
Sapphire R9 290 - GFX
G.Skill Ripjaw X 2x8GB - RAM
ThermalTake ToughPower 750W 80+ Gold - PSU
Windows 10

Roughly two months ago I began having issues while joining a CSGO game. During the loading screen to join the game, (after the lobby) my PC will fully crash and shut down.

I cleaned it out the case and components with compressed air, reseated the CMOS, used different RAM slots and verifying each RAM stick. New thermal paste, and reseated the GPU.
I've also checked my temps in game, and my CPU is 155 degrees fahrenheit or lower, and my GPU is 135 degrees fahrenheit or lower.

This problem does not happen under normal use, no hardware is overclocked.
It will work sometimes, and other times it won't. I'll be able to join a game at random, but it is not at a determined schedule or reason as far as I've been able to tell.

I downloaded FurMark to stress test my GPU, and the EXACT same symptoms as joining a CSGO occurred. The PC completely crashed when I started the test.

Possible faulty GPU/PSU?

Any suggestions?

    I've tried to find my minidump file, but I don't think Windows is creating one.
    I do have Small memory dump enabled to write an event, yet I cannot find it under C:\Windows\Minidump

    This is what I get under Event Viewer;
    "The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
    and APPID
    to the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool."

    What would I call it if my computer turns itself off, and reboots?

    That can be PSU related, it can mean it's faulty. Or something like a power cable maybe loose

  7. I removed the GPU, and on integrated GFX I watched a YT video, and the computer turned itself off.
    Although the integrated GFX did let me use FurMark to test, and my GPU didn't.
    Perhaps the intense draw of current at the beginning of the game or stress test on the GPU is too much.
    This threw me off the trail of the GPU going bad..

    I'll re-check my connections, and hopefully find a local PSU to test.

    Thank you for the suggestions.

    I tried a friends GPU on my rig, and it stressed tested fine.
    I then used his PSU with my GPU and was fine.
    Reverted back to my PSU & GPU, and it failed.

    I RMA'd my PSU. I appreciate the help!
