I need some help. I bought a RTX 3070 for my computer and I have been using it for about 2 weeks. I had to upgrade my PSU as I only had 600w now I have a 850w PSU.
I thought I’d upgrade my CPU as well to get the most out of the graphics card. I had a Ryzen 5 2600x but now I've installed a Ryzen 5 5600x (changed the bios according to my motherboard manufacturer).
As I’m about to play a game on CoD black ops, 2 minutes into an actual game the computer shuts off (this happened again). I updated Chipset drivers as well from AMD official site. Tried a different game (Battlefield 1) this happened again but just before loading into a game.
Things I've done to fix/find issue:
- Ran Cinebench R23 benchmark no issues, ran Heaven benchmark no issues
- Changed power plan to Balanced and changed power plan > advanced settings > processor power management > Maximum processor state to 70%. Same problem occurs but just takes 5/10 mins more until PC shuts off again. Changed back to High Performance now.
- Seen a reddit post suggesting to Set Voltage in BIOS to 1.3. No fix. Changed back to default.
Please help it will be much appreciated.

Do you still have the 600w PSU? 600w should be enough for 5600x + 3070. Could try that to ensure it's not a PSU issue.
Do you happen to have a WHEA-Logger ID 18 error in the Windows Event Viewer?
If you get this error, you might be dealing with what seems to be a common issue with series 5000 processors. Disabling CPB and PBO seem to keep systems from crashing, or playing around with voltages.
If you don't see this error in the event viewer, and you're just getting kernel power 41 on its own, i'd look at the PSU.
