Source engine games makes my pc shut down itself
- A Question for Source Engine
Does it just simply goes "off" by itself, or does it display any kind of error like the Blue screen of death?
If there's no such error, I'm pretty sure the system sink is overheating, causing the PSU unit to fail prematurely. For how long can you keep your computer turned on without turning on a Source Engine based game? See for how long you can keep it up without any kind of applications running.
If the system stays up in this way, turn on a power hungry application (Anything except for a Source Engine game) and see if that kills the PC or not.
