PC shuts off during games.

I recently upgraded my processor cooling from the AMD stock fan to the DEEPCOOL Captain 240mm white All in one liquid cooler, my system that I am on now, will run fine while general web browsing or YouTube videos, but once I get into a game, I see frame drops to nearly unplayable, for a few minutes before the computer shuts off.

I thought it was the cooler not mounted properly, but it is, and my temps are lower than with the stock fan.

Then I thought it was my Graphics card not plugged in right, but it is, all power sources are plugged in properly, and yet The p.c. still just shuts off.

Any Idea's what it could be and how I can fix it would be much appreciated.

Re: PC shuts off during games.

I figured it out the hard way, my fan controller was pulling too much power from the node and was triggering the ocp (over current protection) I had to tear my desktop down and rebuild it to make sure everything was plugged in properly, it runs fine now.

Do you have the AIO plugged into the fan controller?

Anyway, glad to hear it's all working now
