so i just built a new entry level TUF Mother Board , Ryzen 5 2700 , RTX 2060 OC ASUS gpu , 16gb of DDR4 3200 , and it works great , i decided to start using two pc's to stream, i put my older Pc back together, with a new case and motherboard,

Asrock 970A-G/3.1 MB

MSI 1060 6gb GPU gtx GeForce
AMD socket am3 + , black Fx 8350 8 core 3.8 GHZ CPU

RAM - cause of problem i am using either 4 to 8 to 16, of 1800 Kingston matching not mixed memory,

1 TB HDD, and a 120gb SSD, windows 10 pr0 64 is installed, starts up and runs great,
i am basically just going to run obs on it and stream with this one and just run everything else on my main machine, anyway i installed a couple games, i started up fortnite to test, and as soon as it asks if I wanto apply best settings, if i hit yes or no, the pc just goes off, totally, is the cpu getting to hot? the stock fan is on there, and i need to probably re thermal paste it,

i removed it a couple months back just to check something and just put the heat sync back on, cause i wasn't expecting to use it, i also have a fx 6300 6 core i can put in there, cause it seems this motherboard has problems with the 8350 or w/e ive read a lot of people had problems with the 8 core fx 8300 one, what do yall think?, sorry about poor punctuation

The first thing I would check is your PSU, it sounds like it can't manage the
power draw of the GPU and konks out the moment a decent load is applied to it (game).

It is most often the cause of this kind of instant shutoff behavior, either under
powered or going bad.
