Computer Shutting Down During Games. Not temperature related.

There's several of these type of questions floating around but none of them seem to answer my problem. During any game my computer will shut down. It can be Overwatch it can be Mad Max. Each time My temperatures on my CPU and GPU are perfectly acceptable verfied through HW Monitor and EVGA's Precision X. It'll still crash despite the temps. I cannot for the life of me figure out what's going on.

Things I've checked:

RAM through Windows Memory diagnostic came back fine
Temps are fine
Virus and Malware scan is fine
I have a Corsair RM650 80+ Gold PSU. I could probably dust this a bit but it has a filtered intake and *should* be ok.

ASRock Z97 Extreme 6 mobo
4770k default clock. Was OC'd to 4.2Ghz.
H105 AiO liquid cooler
8GB of G. SKill 1866 RAM
SSD and 2 HDD

Any idea what could be going on?

  1. 1| Run memory tests with memtest86 for at least 10 passes and fi any errors occur upto pass #10 then it's the ram.
    2| Have you made sure your BIOS is up to date?
    3| Have you made sure your drivers are allup to date?
    4| Since your system shuts off when under load, the culprit is the PSU, IMHO. You might want to borrow a 750W reliable, branded unit from your friend and see if the same issue persists after breadboarding.

    Although the GTX780 requires 575W of power, it's possible that the factory overclock on your GPU is taxing the PSU more and perhaps the unit is faulty.
