Hi all,

Having these issues for a few days where I'm playing Destiny 2 or Call of Duty and my PC will randomly decide to reboot itself with no BSOD just a "checking disk" message. Nothing shows in event viewer logs too, just the generic error message "unexpected problem caused reboot". I thought it was my PSU, so first test was the paper clip test whichh it passed. Second test for PSU was OCCT and it crashed after less than 10 mins.

Tested memory too with windows memory diagnostic tool and that returned no errors. Also ran a malware scan, updated gpu drivers and cleaned broken registry entries but it still happens.

Any ideas on what to do? Is it my PSU or could it be something else? I'm half thinking to try another stress test with furmark and see what happens there, I'd assume it'll reboot itself again. I also have the .json file that OCCT produced, unsure if that's of any help. I can post if needed. Only built this PC in February too, so strange if it is a PSU failure.

Specs:

MSI Tomahaw Max
R5 3600
16GB 3200MHz RAM
MSI 2070 super x trio
Corsair TX650M PSU


Thanks.
