My pc has started randomly restarting, usually during games. It has happened a few times during csgo and particularly f1 2020 but is fine in more intensive games such as cod cold war. I get a kernel power id 41 (63) and nothing else when i check logs.

Specs
I9 10850k
Z490 tomahawk
2080 super
Vengeance 3200 c16 ram 2x 8g
Tx 850w corsair psu

I have changed my graphics card from a 1070 ti assuming it was the problem and have tried various cpu overclocks ranging from 4.6 ghz-5.1 ghz and still get crashes. Cpu temps never rise above low 70s at 5.1 ghz and gpu is never above 75 degrees c. Psu is only 7-8 months old too, thanks.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

How are you cooling that i9? When you dropped in the GTX2080 Super, did you use DDU to uninstall your GPU drivers and then download the latest drivers from Nvidia's support site to install them in an elevated command, i.e, Right click installer>Run as Administrator?

Did you re-use a Windows installation from another system? Did you install all your motherboard chipset drivers?
Tried reinstalling windows but haven’t updated the motherboard drivers I would need to wait to leave it in somewhere when shops reopen I’m not sure on how to do it

Sorry, the windows installation is fresh but I have never updated the motherboard bios, i am not sure how to.
Actually I was referring to the "Driver" tab on the web page I linked, not the "BIOS" tab. Select the "Driver" tab, then select Win10 64 from the drop down list. That will display "System and Chipset Drivers", "Lan Drivers", etc.
