Question Computer randomly crashes.

Jun 25, 2020
I upgraded my CPU which meant that I needed a new motherboard and new DDR4 ram. I now have a 2070 Super, I7-9700k, 32gb of Ballistax ram, a Corsair CX 750M, and a MSI Z390-A motherboard. It performs great... when it performs. After it turns on it will seemingly randomly restart, sometimes it'll give a Recovery screen, and sometimes it's just a restart. It worked fine before the change so I am inclined to believe it is hardware related; however, I can't seem to figure out how. The ram works, as far as I can tell everything is plugged in well, it's not overheating, and when I thought I had fixed it and benchmarked it, it was beyond expectations. Then it crashed again, and again, and again. Sometimes it'll crash with nothing happening at all, other times it'll take a few minutes and I will be trying to view the logs. I am really confused as to what's causing this.
