I built this PC about a year ago, almost exactly, and only just this evening did I suddenly experience a shut down while the computer wasn't under any stress. Once it had shut down it attempted to restart automatically and had only made it past POST before shutting down once more and refusing to start up.
After leaving it unplugged and power cycling the machine for a few minuted I was able to restart and got as far as the Windows login screen before it shut off once more. Upon trying to start it I get a flash of my case lights then nothing.
My suspicion is the PSU as it was where I sorta cheaped out on this build. I don't have a spare to test at the moment, but I wanted an opinion on whether this seemed most likely.
