Recently bought a new PSU almost immediate problems.

Hello, I've recently bought a new 550W PSU for my PC and after around 10mins of hard gaming (MW3,BF3 etc...) on high graphics the PC will boot down. I was wondering if perhaps i have installed it incorrectly or there is anything possibly wrong with the PSU i have bought? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated :D thank you

  1. Need your system specs...especially for your PSU
  2. 1GB SAPP HD6790 11194-00-20G

    MSI 870-G45 mobo

    If the above is your PSU then there in lies your major malfunction in life, send it back and buy a decent branded unit from the likes of Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, XFX or Silverstone. Never ever try to save money when it comes to buying a PSU it is the single most important factor on any PC.
  4. Like Uther said, you want to get your money back on that one, but out of curiosity can you post all the information from the sticker on the side? I want to find out who made it.

    eta: The cheapest 550 PSU that is worth purchasing on the site Uther linked is:
