One of my friends built my computer a few years ago. It has worked so well until recently.
During my Fall semester of school, I moved into a new apartment number on campus.
World Of Warcraft has worked fine ever since I moved into this apartment.

The problem,
Within 5-10 minutes when I first log into WoW for the day, my computer Shuts off and reboots.
When I get on again, right after, it reboots itself again, but only within 2-3 minutes or less.
I've tried playing on the lowest setting possible, even though I normally play on ultra... :/

My computer has done this even watching youtube videos.

What is weird about this problem is, when I went home for christmas break, my computer did not shut off once. I played and played and played, for hours.

I just got my internet today, same apartment as last semester, about 10 minutes into gameplay, it shut off and rebooted.
Logged back into my account, 2-3 minutes, shut off and rebooted.

If I were to go home and hook my computer up and log in, I would be able to play for hours.

Is this a faulty PSU?
I'd call it overheating, but it only does it here.
I've tried two different outlets also.
So any suggestions? :confused::confused::confused::confused:

What make, model and wattage PSU are you running? Also go into the BIOS and report back the temps and voltages please.

Go into the BIOS (press the del key on startup) and check the temps and voltages there under Hardware Monitoring. Your PSU is Corsair's Builder series which are their lowest tier power supplies, but it should be enough to power what you're running. How old is the PSU?
