    Windows 8.1


    I took my PC to a friend's shop to test. It ran PERFECTLY during multiple stress tests and ULTRA settings gaming.
    When I returned home, the same problem happened again, PC keeps on powering off the second I start the stress test / gaming.

    My father did a check on my house electric power and eliminated the weak power supply possibility. We even turned off our fridges and other high power consumption machines/devices.
    Same problem

    That's really strange. I would have suspected the electricity as well.

    Anyhow, it could be the Single Phase / Triple Phase electric power thingy, since my house is running on Single Phase. Maybe I should upgrade to a Triple Phase supply. That should really be a problem else where but here.
    Thanks for your help kind folks!
    Much appreciated!

    Let us know if the Triple Phase supply solves the problem ^_^

    As far as I know, the system should not have any problem running on a Single Phase Supply. Make sure that the connections to which the system is attached is properly grounded. Are you using a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) with your system?

    Hi guys, just a quick update.
    I've swapped my Corsair VS650 to SuperFlower 600W power supply, and downgraded from Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 7 Professional. Now everything's working like a charm!

    Many thanks again.

    Hi Jinfatt ^_^,

    Thanks for posting back what solved your problem.

    I wonder what resolved the problem- Swapping of the PSU or the downgrade?

    I'm inclined to believe that it is the PSU problem, more likely

    Hmm it is very much possible after seeing your system work flawlessly at your friend's house. Anyways, glad to hear that the problem has resolved.

    Happy Gaming!
