Question PC constantly crashing

Nov 13, 2020
Basically, after some PSU problems that happened about a month ago my pc was great. However, recently it freezes and I can't move my mouse or hear any audio. Most of the time it will just come back after like 2 seconds but when I try to run games that are high intensity. For example, MK11 or cyberpunk, my PC straight up just crashes when it is trying to load the game. It will freeze like normal and then will say that It is gathering information about the problem and then restart. This isn't a huge inconvenience but it is definitely something I want to fix so that I can play those games again.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 6-Core Processor (boosted to 4.2hz which has been fine)
8GB of DDR4 Ram 3600mhz(also has been fine running these games for a while)
Radeon RX5700XT(overclocked)
PSU: Coolermaster MWE750V2 fully modular 80+gold rating
Motherboard: Asus TUF X570-plus wifi

Alsooooo... my PSU has been doing some weird stuff where now i need to basically do the paperclip test on it to kinda jumpstart it and then it will turn on. Otherwise, my PSU is basically off most of the time, once again doing this has been working fine for the past month with no problems.
