Desktop shuts down while play DOTA 2

Hi I recently changed to a new PSU, as recommended by the salesperson, Xigmatek 650W Gold, because my old seasonic X died on me.

My GPU is EVGA GTX 770 SC 2GB

when i play dota 2, it suddenly shuts down all of a sudden and then restarts by itself. could the PSU be a factor?

thanks!

Your CPU overclocked? Reverse to default and see.

Any error codes? Any beeping? Any other things happen apart from the recent change of PSU?

Suspect Overheat.
Could be CPU or GPU.
Open up the casing check the fans while running your game.

My PC does the same thing...
i5 2500k, I recently upgraded my GPU and it happened before and after.
My PSU is 7 years old, an Antec Truepower New 650W.

I've ordered a new PSU to see if that resolves the problem.

Does yours only shutdown during Dota? Mine normally shuts down once 5 mins after a cold boot, and then is more stable after the first restart.

I've had it restart in other applications and even without other programs running.

Check your 12v rail and see if it is stable.

I assume the PC works normally when you are not playing any game?

Possibly your PSU 12v not enough power during load. Since it only happens when you play games.

Can download hwinfo to see what is the 12v reading, otherwise, check your bios.
