Hello all, I am having a very strange issue. PC was built about 13 months ago, and have had 0 issues. Randomly, two days ago I woke up to my PC unable to wake up. I hard reset it, and all was fine.

Later that day, in the middle of gaming, PC black screens, audio starts lagging. Hard reset.

Later, while afk, at idle, come back to PC black screen. Hard reset.

You see where this is going. It has now done this about 5 times.


What I have tried:
-Memtest: all is okay.
-Graphics card has been reseated.
-Drivers cleared with DDU, reinstalled.
-Different graphics card tried.
-Bios update.
-Windows update.
Temps monitored, and are fine in stress test.
-CPU stress test.
-Downgraded GPU drivers.

After all this, it is still happening.
In reliability monitor, in the last 24 hours I have had 503 critical events.
Most of which has been a Windows hardware issue with
LiveKernelEvent 141.

I am at a loss as what to do next. Thanks all.


Specs:
Z-370a prime mobo
GTX 1080 OC GPU
intel i5 8600k non OC CPU
G skill trident RGB 2x8 RAM
EVGA Supernova 650W 80 + Gold PSU

It could be either a dust pileup in your cpu/gpu as dust has some side effects for your pc or your drivers could be broken. Try downgrading them and see what happens.

Have downgraded drivers. Currently sitting on that seeing if it helps.
