Hey Guys,

I've built many PCs in the past and never had this issue.

Z390 w/9900K and 32GB DDR4 RAM

It would restart at odd times after installing everything (didn't reformat) so, I reformatted. Now that I've reformatted, when I just get into windows or to the login screen, it restarts.

Any thoughts?

I know there is a 4 pin and 2 pin connector for power near the CPU. I had the 4 PIN in, but don't have another 2 pin. It's one or the other though right?

I downloaded the bios update onto flash media but when I go to bios and q flash, I don't see it there.
 
There’s an 8 pin and a 4 pin. You need to power both, it’s a damn 9900k lol. That thing hits 250watts when stressed. If your power supply doesn’t have two cables to power the CPU then it has no business trying to power a 9900k, it’s either pretty old or very cheap(time to replace either way).

So first off get a quality PSU, seasonic focus gold, Corsair tmx, Rm or RMx, EVGA supersonic G3. I would get at least a 650 watt, depending on your GPU, going higher won’t hurt.
