My computer shuts off on certain games

My computer completely shuts off when I start playing Max Payne 3 and the S.T.A.L.K.E.R games. By shut's off I mean everything literally stops as if somebody pulled out the power cord to the power supply. I looked at Event Viewer and it comes up with one critical error, the ID is (Event ID 41 - Kernel-Power) 

I went and did Star swarm stress test and when I choose Mantle it runs fine but when I choose D3D literally 1 second later my rig shuts off. Is this relevant to the PSU or is this a graphic card issue?  


If my hunch is correct my Power supply is faulty. I have no tools to check my Power supply so i'm out of luck if that's the reason why my computer is randomly shutting off when I play those games :/   

Do any of you have any idea's of what I should do/what the issue could be?


Now before you ask, here are my computers specs:

sounds like a power-supply issue, from what I can tell it has 4 12v 20 amp rails, One of these rails could be bad or you may be going over the 20 amp over current protection.


The power-supply may be faulty, however you may find success in splitting and moving the gpu power load to different rails.
