I have an ongoing problem with my new build shutting down randomly. It is very sporadic: it can be 5 times a day, or once in 5 days.
My temperatures are fine, I have tested the wall sockets and have the latest (Asus BIOS). After shutting down, the reboot/shutdown cycle loops until I manually power off. On reboot, there is no anti-surge warning.
Recently, I unplugged 2 120mm fans, 2 sticks of RAM and an SSD. It has not happened since. I am wondering if my power supply is insufficient (although it is an AX860i from Corsair). Is that possible, particularly if the Titan is drawing a lot of power?!

By 'shutting down' I just mean the power suddenly cuts off, as if I had turned off the wall socket, there is no normal shutdown procedure.
I am using Ubuntu, where is the events log please? Thanks.
The incident happened again today. Instead of turning it off during the reboot cycle, I left it to resolve. I then got the error message from Asus saying that it was due to the Asus anti-surge protection because power surges had been detected.
I am extremely reluctant to turn the anti-surge protection off, in case my components are damaged by a genuine power surge. Is there any alternative?
Thanks for all the responses. I replaced my PSU with a EVGA SuperNOVA 1200 P2 and have had no problems since. So, either the Corsair 860W PSU was insufficient or it was faulty.
