Computer shuts down randomly

My computer will just go blank and my keyboard and mice will no longer be lit up. I have tried cleaning the dust out, taking off my moderate overclocks (cpu:3.775 ram:3200). Power button doesn't work and I have to flip the switch on the back. Occurs during anything including gaming or just on the web. Ran memory test. not thermal issue. I have no clue why this is happening. please help System 1700x x370 Primepro Flare x 3200mhz Evga 850 Pt Zotac Gtx 1080 Evga AIO 280 Samsung 850 ssd WD black 1Tb

When did this start?

So just to clarify it works fine until it is put under load? Might be a PSU issue. I had a similar problem and it ended up being the PSU . Also where any updates of any kind done right before this issue started? Are all your drivers up to date and have you done a virus scan recently. Troubleshooting can take a while so just be patient and check everything you can so you can rule out what isn't the problem. Also check to make sure nothing could be getting shorted out on the MB, this probably isn't the problem but its worth a quick check.

Edit: do you have the latest BIOS revision for your board.

Clarify on this. How would said software be an issue? And he has also said nothing about it being a Windows issue, in which case it's very, very likely he does not use Windows Insider. Besides, Windows Insider almost never has PC-crashing bugs.
