PC restarting randomly, no bluescreen

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Been dealing with this for a month now, and decided to come here for advice.

Basically the computer just dies, no freezing, no blue screen, just cuts off, and powers back on a couple seconds later.

Things I've checked so far:

-CPU temps are fine, it crashes sometimes just browsing reddit, but mainly in the middle of a game

-Not the GPU, I've since switched it with a new one, same problem


I suspect the PSU (Corsair 1000HX) and put a ticket in today, but I'm also afraid it might be the CPU or mobo. It couldn't be the RAM right? Wouldn't that cause a blue screen?

Thanks for any suggestions, any help is welcome!

EDIT: Can a PSU overheat and cause this kind of problem? Like if the fan went out?

Sounds like the PSU. It might be turning back on right after because you may have the option "Power on after power failure" enabled

I see. I just checked and the fan is still working. The PSU is 4 years old, just within the 5 year warranty. Just sucks not being able to test it with a spare.
