So I had performed a reset on my custom PC a month back. It had been working fine until a few days when -

  1. It would randomly shut down (and no not a proper shut down, just the system will go off). There's nothing particular I can see triggering it, I might just be browsing internet and it would go off. It might be on standby and it might go off. I might we watching something and it would go off. So no heavy processes that can be linked directly.
  2. It would restart on its own whenever it wants. So I can try pressing the power button but it wouldn't restart. And then it would start automatically in an hour, or 6 hours, or right away after being shut down. Even killing entire power, letting it sit for a few minutes, reconnecting the power and trying to power on wouldn't work.
I am not sure what is triggering this, and I have faced several issues in past, but never faced quite like this one. I tried pressing the connectors inside to GPU, power and it would still keep doing this.
There's nothing I have installed suddenly which should be doing this.

I even did a system restore to a point which was 5-6 days before this problem first occurred and still it keeps doing this.

Any and all suggestions are welcome here!

PSU: Corsair RM Series RM1000-1000 Watt

It was quite odd though that my CPU temp was so high. There's was nothing else running but Speccy and Chrome tab (low intensity), although the temp did stabilize in some time
