Thor 1200w possible 5v issue

Level 7
Yesterday, I started crashing out of the blue. No error, No bsod, PC just powers down, restarted and powers up again.

The crashes are very inconsistent. Sometimes happening back to back. Or other times being a couple hours apart. It can happen during gaming, video streaming and just sitting on the desktop not doing anything.

Event Viewer states "The previous system shutdown at 9:11:40 AM on ‎11/‎13/‎2020 was unexpected." and "Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0" Which hasn't been helpful. Same with WhoCrashed it.
PSU unit could possible be an issue, as the 5v Voltage is at +4.960 in Bios. I'm not sure if this is within its normal operational ranges?

In AI suite 3 it shows the +5v at 5.000V

Minor fluctuations in voltage are normal. In fact, most DC devices can easily handle up to 5% fluctuation and be within spec.
A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station…

Resolved. Program conflict, Asus services vs Armoury Create was the culprit.

Hi, what exactly did you do to fix the issue? 

I'm having the same problem over here. The Wattage won't display once Windows is booted up....

Thanks in advance ^^
