It restarts like full black screen, no warnings, no BSOD, my whole PC turned off, after a milliseconds or 1secs it turns back on.
Is it the GPU is the culprit here or the PSU?, I tried using integrated graphics(Removed my GPU) and played the same game with same PSU and it didn't restarts...
btw here are my specs:
GPU: power color r7 250
CPU:Intel i3 4150
PSU: corsair vs550
RAM: Kingston Hyper X fury 8gb 1866(single)
MOBO: Gigabyte H81M DS2

Front intake is important too. What model is the case? Also, try checking if your GPU fan is running correctly. Maybe a wire got stuck in the fan blades or it isn't running at all.
