My pc just freezes and restarts when gaming. Temps don't go over 75c, no sudden fps drops nor weird stuttering. I've tried numerous things: Windows reinstall, updating bios, tweaking gpu settings on radeon software, changing power options. Tweaking gpu settings worked for a few days but then everything went back to same freezing. Everything is fine when browsing internet or watching videos on youtube. Thanks for the help.

Specs:

AMD Radeon RX 580 (8GB VRAM) - GPU
Intel Core i3-10100F - CPU
GIGABYTE B460M DS3H - MOTHERBOARD
CORSAIR CV Series CV450 - 450W - PSU
Crucial MX500 SSD - SSD
Patriot premium DDR4 16GB - RAM
TOSHIBA P300 2TB - HDD
 
Your thread holds a big sign with neon lights. PSU.
CV series is the worst from Corsair and they are known to cause issues. I bet it's not close to being new, so it has degraded. You also have less wattage than recommended by the GPU manufacturer.

So you're suggesting to test with a different PSU?
 
I am saying that the PSU that you are using is crap and lower wattage than the recommended from AMD.
You should buy a quality PSU even if it's not the cause of your issue, which I highly doubt it's something else.
Tier B or above for gaming rigs.
