it sounds like you connected something wrong. theres a diagram in the manual that tells you what plugs in to where.

The AX850 is more than enough power for your system. It can actually handle another 580 tacked on too. I have the AX1200 so it's a different unit but my questions will assume your unit is the same. Are the peripheral cables plugged into the sockets on the psu with 6 holes and the pci-e power cables plugged into the sockets with 8 holes? I don't think it's possible to plug the cables into the wrong slot unless it's possible to plug the 6 pin into the 8 pin slots.

Also, how does it restart or shutdown? Does it do that immediately with no warning or is there an error code or something? And, is this happening while you're playing a game or stressing the gpu or cpu when this happens or does it happen randomly?
