As stated in the title, my PC is experiencing random reboots of system.
The problem started happening few months ago but I didn't bother as much, and since reboots started to get more frequent I bought a new PSU because I thought I might have less power than needed. As I am writing this, reboots are still happening, so new PSU obviously haven't solved anything. Overheating doesen't seem to be a problem, I checked the temps, CPU isn't getting over 60, and GPU isn't getting over 80 degrees.
Reboot is happening mostly when I am playing Overwatch, sometimes after 10,20,30 minutes and sometimes it can take hour or more to reboot. It's also happening while im writing documents in Word and browsing the web simoultaneously.
The steps I already tried to do are:
- swapping different GPU
- completely reinstalling windows 10
- removed all other usb devices and kept only mouse and keyboard
- checked the temp
CPU - AMD - FX-8120 3.1GHz 8-Core Processor
