Hello all, I recently installed a GeForce GTX 1660 Super Gaming XBV Graphics card by MSI in my Dell XPS 8700 PC. Since installing the graphics card, the PC randomly restarts by itself. Just a random reboot for no reason? No errors. The specs for the graphics card were a 450 W Power Supply so I should be OK there. My PC has Windows 10 64 bit OS, 32 GB G.Skill RAM. Any ideas as to what the issue maybe? TIA

What are the Dell PSU specs?
I'm still suspecting the power supply.
Have you checked the temps?
Did you have a GPU in there prior to the new one?
PSU on this PC is 450W
How do you check the temp?
Just the GPU that came with the PC which was a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 645 1.0GB G DDR5

You can set it lower. the problem is your PSU it not giving enough power. :) so try limit it to 50%.
Thanks! It appears it is overwriting my setting. I changed it and it went back to 100 at one point possibly during the game. I also browsed settings and tried the "forced constant voltage" and it didnt seem to work as when I rebooted it was set back to 100?

You have to go Settings on MSI and enable it to auto start

then create a profile then lock it.
