I built my PC back in 2018-19, and I've had barely any problems, and between 2021-22 I upgraded my CPU and GPU with no problems, I just more recently upgraded my AIO cooler. I don't think that its the one causing problems, but when I try to start a graphics intensive game like Apex Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, Overwatch, etc. the computer just black screens (like it shut down) and then restarts. I checked the event viewer and it shows me an Event ID 41 Kernal power, and the error code values are zero. I then updated my bios, uninstalled and reinstalled the GPU drivers twice, and changed the power settings on my pc. Still nothing, idk what to do next, I contacted the EVGA support for if it might be a problem with my power supply and they recommended I check the +12v readings , and so I checked and they are in between the correct readings, they also recommended to give the PSU a dusting which I will probably do this weekend and a jump start test. Idk really what to do next after I dust it and jump test it and idk if it even is the PSU, so if anyone has any idea of what to do, please let me know.

Is ECO Mode switch on, on that PSU?
@TSMikeW no it is not, I don't use it because I prefer to have my PSU cooled whenever I have it on.
Wow, so I just cleaned out my PSU, and now it seems to run perfectly fine. Technology bruh moment.
