    Understanding Meaning of Power Indicator Blinks for Gigabyte GA-B85-HD3 Motherboard

    For random shutdowns there are two things I would strongly suspect: the power supply, or overheating.

    I can't find any information on the Value Top 450W, but based on images I'd suggest it's a very old style -- most likely terrible quality -- PSU that shouldn't be used in a nice new machine.

    If you have access to a spare power supply, I'd suggest trying that. Regardless I'd consider buying a new decent quality power supply, as I don't think I'd trust the Value Top one myself.

    To check if your CPU is overheating, download a tool like HwMon and see what it says. Temps should be around 30-40 degrees at idle, and no more than 60-70 under load.

    The other candidates I can think of are:

    • Motherboard. You can try resetting the CMOS by shutting down, unplugging the power supply, and then removing the battery on the motherboard for 5 minutes. This fixes strange problems sometimes. Identifying the motherboard as the problem part is tricky though, normally it's a process of elimination of all other parts.
    • Hard drive. A faulty hard drive can sometimes cause strange system stability issues. I'd suggest this is an unlikely cause in this case though.

    So, it's very difficult to tell without actually testing, but I highly suspect power supply if CPU temperature is okay.

    Edit: As to an answer for your actual question, I don't know what the blinks mean. For whatever reason, motherboard manufacturers don't seem to include their own beep codes any more in manuals, let alone flashing patterns on the front-of-case LEDs. But hopefully someone knows and can tell you exactly.
