Hello! My PC restarts randomly while playing games, in the event viewer there is Kernel Power 41 errors.
Also I did some tests in Heaven Benchmark, it restarted as well.
Then I did an OCCT VRAM test(30 minutes) and it gave me lots of errors.
Is my GPU dying?
Here is my PC specs:
CPU: i5 8600k
MB: ASROCK Z390 pro4
RAM: 2x8GB CORSAIR RS DDR4 3200mhz
GPU: ZOTAC TWIN EDGE OC RTX 3060
PSU: CORSAIR CX650M
Thanks!

GPU temperatures are 55-65C during OCCT
And it doesn't give any information on what the error is.
I couldn't figure out how to attach a picture, sorry i am new here.
 
Ok, is there any other issues to the computer beside this ?

Also - do you have a more detailed story - i.e. what changes did you do (software/hardware) in the time before you noticed the errors? Did you build it yourself, was built where you bought it, or by a friend (or some random dude)? Have this problem being an issue for long time or just recently happens?

There aren't any issues beside this, i didn't download any new software, and no hardware was changed. I built it myself about a year ago. The problem started a week ago.

Sorry to bother you again, but I have a question:
I clicked restart on my PC and it has been on the restarting screen for like 5 minutes and then it showed a BSOD: Driver Power State Failure.
Does this refer to something?
Thanks!
