My PC has randomly been restarting since upgrading my CPU (and athlon II 255 - FX8350) . I thought maybe heat was the issue but everything works when I stress it and have the CPU running at 100% but during light browsing on google or playing games (neither of which pin the CPU over 50%max) the computer just restarts on its own.

Currently leaning towards a failing PSU but the PSU runs fine with my athlon II 255 So not sure there either
 
I'm currently using the msi 760gm-p23
In my searching of that MB model, I only see MSI 760gm-P23 (FX).

If yours doesn't have the (FX) at the end of the model number, it may not have supported the FX CPUs when the MB was released.

The FX being in parenthesis may be due to FX support being added via BIOS updates, and since it's quite an old model of MB, you should probably just flash to the latest BIOS version anyway if it isn't already at that BIOS version.

The latest BIOS version is H.G

(MSI advises to use Chrome, Firefox 3.0 or IE 8.0 above browsers to download BIOS, Drivers, etc.)
