My new built PC crashes when I play games!

  CRZE__ 18:30 08 Jan 2019

I built a new pc a few days ago and I'm having problems as everytime I launch a game 2 minutes in my Pc crashes ( I don't mean the blue screen) and I can't do anything except turn the power off and back on.

The specs are below:

Gigabyte GTX 1080 Gigabyte Z370p D3 16 gb corsair ddr4 ram i7 9700k 8 cores 650w corsair Gold PSU 240mm cooler master rgb liquid cooler WD 1tb HDD Crucial MX500 248gb SSD

I have tried using my old GPU 1050ti to launch a game to see if the GPU was the problem but my pc still crashed. I have reinstalled the ram and cpu. And applied new thermal paste. I have unplugged all my wires and put them back in correctly.

1 thing to say before I built this PC I had to update my mobo bios to F10 (which is the update that supports 9th gen) so I could use my new cpu.

Please can someone help!

  1. run a memory test

  2. check driver updates.
