PC restarts when NOT gaming

Hey,

As title suggests, my PC restarts on its own. I read multiple forum threads, tried some of the solutions but no help.

Most of the time I spend playing games (80%) and watch YouTube/surf on the internet etc (20%). My PC has not restarted a SINGLE time while I was playing, but it can restart 3-5 times within an hour of doing anything else but gaming. It doesn't install any update or anything, it just restarts. Now whenever I need to use PC I run any game in the background so it won't restart and considering this strange fact I doubt this is hardware issue.

I use Windows 10 on custom-built PC and yes I did untick the box to auto restart upon system failure in windows settings.

Any suggestions? Any help appreciated!
