    They are not at all expensive, but even easier is a unit for power supplies

    You don't need a multimeter.

    You say that the PSU turns on and immediately turns off. If you jumper the PSU, the fan will spin. If the fan doesn't stop spinning, the PSU hasn't shut off.

    Just a little update: I continued getting random shutdowns, so I returned it and now I'm getting the money back. Got a Seasonic Focus Plus 550W instead, no trouble at all. Thanks for the help guys!
