Hay
Hope you guys can help.

My PC has been randomly restarting while I'm playing squad. I haven't picked it up with any other game but i don't play a big variety of games and the others are a lot less resource-intensive.

I also have an issue where my mouse and keyboard freezes from time to time, i doubt its related and I'm currently checking whether its one or the other thats causing that problem.

This is my pc specs: https://valid.x86.fr/j88m6s

Find a link here to the logs that i attempted to keep uploaded to my onedrive account. I used CPU Z from techpowerup, openhardware monitor and HWinfo the exact time that it happened in the logs is 21:45:40. both the CPU Z and openhardware monitor logs record again afterwards (CPU Z logs record an hour or so later but openhardware monitor starts automatically after my pc starts).

I know nothing about computers and dont know what the logs is telling me.

I ran MemTest86 and there as no errors.

Thanks.

Hi
I believe i have a Corsair vs650, or at least that is what it says on the outside.

Earlier today i came across this post https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/pc-is-repeating-letters-same-issue-with-different-keyboards.3325725/

which makes it seem that the issue with my keyboard (Repeating letters) and mouse (Freezing) at times, especially in games, is somehow related to the PC restarting and that it might be a Mobo or PSU issue.

Is there a way I can test whether this is the issue without replacing them?

Not really. Without swapping out parts, it's difficult. A simple option (although with local Covid restrictions could be difficult) would be to bring it to a local repair store. They might charge 20£$€ or so to swap out PSU and diagnose.

You can of course get a new one to replace the VS. Just on the current one, the Corsair VS are generally considered to not be the best at all. They might be okay for a standard low-mid range PC, but have a tendency to fail, and aren't made with quality parts.

I'd recommend getting a good quality gold unit. They are quite reasonable now.

A Corsair TXM/RMX/RMI, Seasonic Focus Plus Gold, EVGA G2/G3 are all quality units with 7-10 year warranties.

Thank you. I will try to have it tested in the next 2 weeks and report back.
