I mostly play Dota 2 but occasionally I dabble in a few other games. About 2 weeks ago, my computer began restarting randomly with no warning. At first it only happened when playing against bots but recently it happened while playing against other people.

I thought it was just Dota but then I played Dying Light and the same thing happened. I want to see what other people think the problem is. I think it is the power supply but I wanted to check.

There is no blue screen, no warning, and all temps are looking normal. It only happens when there is something major happening.

Open your PC, check all wiring and connections. Disconnect one of your fans. Run tweaking repair from tweaking.com

I had the same. I did that and it worked

I really think just disconnecting one fan was enough - maybe it was pushing my PSU over its limit. Try it... it worked for me

It was the PSU. I bought a new one and haven't had any problems.

I tried this at first. It helped but the computer still restarted when under stress for about 25 min. A new PSU fixed everything though.
