Question PC Randomly Restarting During Some Games

Sep 18, 2019
Hi All,

Long time reader, first time poster. I have read quite a few of these posts and don't seem to have any luck. Most of my random restarts seem to happen while playing BDO. I could play fortnight 24/7 with no issues and Valley Benchmark at full settings doesn't cause any abnormal heat issues either. Temps never seem to be an issue as I usually keep tabs and run HWMonitor on the side. GPU usually runs at around 37 C idle and mid 50s during gaming. Part of me suspects my MB or CPU might not be up to part with my GPU as I was lucky enough to get shipped a RTX 2080 by accident, thanks Amazon, while I did this build. A lot of posts seem to point to the PSU, it does run at start-up momentarily, but I haven't noticed it running while playing (which it is only supposed to run if it gets to hot for a few seconds). Any thoughts or ideas? Upgrading any parts isn't an issue if a part is lagging behind causing restarts. Thanks for any future thoughts or advice!
