I have recently changed from an old intel motherboard to a gaming amd one looking for some performance in gaming at a better price range and i have an old 500W PSU that i didn't change with the new motherboad and cpu the problem is that this motherboard have 8 pin atx cpu connectors and my PSU only have 4 pin connector, in the manual of the motherboard they explain that i can use both 8 pin or 4 pin but i think the cpu in use might need all 8 pins because when im in the middle of the games my pc shut down and start over again, my old cpu had a TDP of 55W and this one have 125, would like some help to see if the PSU is the problem, Thanks.
