Computer Shuts off during gaming

Hey guys I just want to get your thoughts on something. I built a pc not to long ago and had no problems with it. Now I play Chivalry Medieval Warfare for a couple of hours and the computer just shuts down. I haven't had that problem with any of my other games yet. I play sc2, d3,CoH,skyrim, etc... This is the only game I've noticed a random shut down.

Specs:
Amd Phenom processer 3.4
16gb of ram
ultra 750 watt atx psu
msi 970a-g46 mob
geforce gtx 660

I don't think its a heat issue because everything is fairly new and I have 3 fans in my case. So it could be my psu or mob is what I'm thinking but I'm not 100% sure. So askin for help here...

  1. have you checked your temps? sounds like a temp issue.
  2. I've checked my temps on my gpu and ran a stress test on it. it passed. on my cpu i've ran a prime95 for a little bit and it never got about 60c. still not sure what it could be though.
    thanks for the reply.

  4. Ok, I googled my problem and I have the exact same problem. Have you found a solution? I'm running Windows 8 and a Geforce 670. Only in Chivalry does my PC just power down completely. I thought temps also, so I cranked the Uniengine benchmark and looped it hours with no problems whatsoever. At least I know I'm not going crazy over here.
  5. if both of you are having problems ONLY on Chivalry then maybe something is wrong with the game, but i have no idea what that would be or how that would even be possible
  6. I don't understand it either. I've got a thread going on the official Chivalry forums, but no one really seems to believe that it isn't a hardware problem even though it only occurs during that one game. I just resorted to not playing it even though my friends are. Haven't had a single problem since I stopped playing it.
