My computer randomly turns off

Specs: iPhone
I play lots of games on my pc but not the games that are heavily graphics based.

Today I was just starting to play comp in csgo and all of a sudden my pc just turned off like there was a power cut I checked my alarm clock on my desk and that was still on.

My pc did have a over heating problem but I added a fan at the back blowing outwards and I also have a fan on the front and on the side of my pc that are blowing inwards

My pc case is a vivid gaming pc (green)

Did you check the temperatures around the time this happened? Overheating is the most common cause of sudden shut downs. It can sometimes be a heatsink fixing issue - let us have your readings.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Having a decent heatsink/fan properly installed with the correct thermal paste application is essential. And when it comes to case cooling, the most important fan is the rear exhaust fan. If you have the room, it should be a 120mm or 140mm. Front intake fans are helpful but not absolutely necessary. Side panel fans are disruptive to proper airflow & should not be used.

do you play cs:go with vsync on or off?

(
since by keeping vsynch off could cause your gpu to run at 100% all the time, which can cause overheating with the only gain being response time, but we're talking about ~8 milliseconds here.
)

Simple solutions are often the best

28-32 which is not the highest it has been.

If it does it again run these three freebies in the order given (they often find what AVs miss):

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.org/junkwa...
(blue Download button).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

If any of them find something copy/paste the appropriate logs on here. If you lose the ADW log you can find it as a text file in the ADWCleaner folder directly off the system drive root (usually C).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Could you provide system specs aka cpu, gpu, mobo, psu

Also do you have your cpu &/or gpu overlocked?
