I bought a board and processor just a few days ago it was alright at first but now when i am playing heavy games like rdr 2 and COD Mw for like 50-60 min it powers off for 1-2 sec and powers on automatically. In normal usage or when i am play CSGO its working flamelessly. And now after i shut it down 2-3 times it just dont power on. So Everytime i had to remove Cmos battery and put it back in. I tried replacing it but same problem. And also updated bios. Is it a faulty motherboard?
Specs:
Cpu: Xeon e3-1246 v3
Mobo: msi h81m-p33
Gpu: Rx 580 8 gb
psu: Coolermaster 550w
Ram: 16gb

This is strange
You say that it happens only in heavy games
Do you know how much power your pc is drawing?
i am not sure about that but i was using same specs for past 2 years same psu and same gpu. i just changed board and cpu. and since then i am having this problem. i think 550watt psu is enough for this build. and i dont think this not powering on until i take out cmos battery and put it back in problem is causing by psu?

Yeah I think so too,
Do you overclock? If so, to what clock speeds?
