Hello,

I've recently built my own PC and it has been running well until recently the PC itself began to restart randomly from time to time.

The intervals for it restarting can vary from 10 minutes to a few days.

I'm assuming its mostly a hardware problem. ( I guess another thing to note was that I accidentally did get TP onto the MOBO, but I managed to clean it off and it has been working fine until recently with the random reboots.)

My current build:
CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
MBD - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
RAM - G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
HD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
GPU - Asus Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 1GB Video Card
PSU - CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Could possible be a PSU problem, I would try swapping out the PSU with something else, And see if the problem persists...

Thanks for the reply, but I think it is most likely a PSU problem seeing as now the PC won't start up after I cleaned the inside of it with compressed air. :/ 

That said would you know a good recommendations for a good PSU?
