Game causes power surge shutdown

Every time I try to play the Alpha my computer detects a power surge and quickly restarts. Only happens during Everspace Alpha

Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz
Nvidia GTX 970 (4GB)
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO ALPHA

    • Can you give us some more detail about when and how often this happens? Is it every time right after clicking launch in Steam or more like every X minutes of playing the game?
    • How many frames per seconds do you have in-Game, in hangar screen, in the menu? (You can display them e.g. by Steam => Settings => In-game => In-game FPS Counter)
    • What power supply unit do you have?
    • Which / How many other graphic havy game titles have you played with your current hardware setup?
    • Which operating system are you using?

    My computer did this with Skyrim when I installed a bunch of graphics mods. The PSU couldn't handle the draw and shut the computer down. Fixed when I upgraded PSUs.
