I have an AMD A10-5800k Trinity CPU running on a Gigabyte board, with a 400w Coolermaster Elite RS-400-PSARJ3, which is a 400W PSU.
The system hasn't really been exercised for gaming since I built it, and it only got its first workout about a month ago - my daughter wanted to play Disney Infinity. After about 10 mins of playing the system unexpectedly shutdown. I put this down to the Disney software and thought nothing more - and removed the game.
I just installed Wolf New Order, and got the same experience... about 10 mins in and sudden unexpected shutdown.
Either it's overheating rapidly as the APU gets used, or the PSU is running out of puff.
Under peak load the APU is only supposed to jump to 220w, with motherboard and other stuff I was expecting no more than 280w at peak. At idle the system is consuming 136w.
Cooling is the stock AMD one - its quiet enough - and there is brilliant ventilation throughout.... which is leading me to suspect either the PSU or APU. Methinks the APU is getting warm.... but I wonder
Thoughts? only gaming is affected.
