Newly built pc Restarting randomly.

I just built my pc 2 days ago and it keeps restarting without any warnings or BSOD.
I checked if it was heat issues causing it to crash but my temps don't go high enough at full load to make my pc crash.
After some research i was told to run Furmark benchmark program to see if its my GPU making it crash. I ran Furmark and it crashed when it was half way through the bench marking process.

By the way it doesn't crash a lot maybe 2-3 times a day. It crash at completely random times. Today it only restarted 1 time so far.

Here is my build

CPU : I7 4770K (Stock speeds)
Z87 Sabertooth
16 GB 1866 Vengance pro
GTX 760 Gigabyte Rev 2.0 (Stock speeds)
H100i cooler
Seasonic X Series 750w

  1. Have you checked your voltages?
  2. with new system and new cpu did you make sure your running the newest bios for the mb and is xmp profile on for your ram. also have you tried running your system on the intel ipgpu with the 760 pulled to see if it a power or gpu issue.

    yes i updated to the newest bios and updated all drivers. Xmp is on. How should i test the ipgpu to see if it was the PSU or GPU
  4. pull the gpu and then run the pc...if it crashes it not the gpu.
  5. ok so i ran memtest to rule out the ram being the issue. I used 3d mark and the 760 crashed around the end but the integrated gpu didnt. Now my question is, is the 760 the issue or is it that the power supply is defective and cant handle the 760 ?
  6. i dont have a spare gpu or psu so what do you guys think i should rma first ? the gpu or psu ?
  7. can you put the 760 in another pc??
  8. i believe i found out the problem. I was using a OLD surge protector. when i connected directly to the wall my gtx 760 passed 3d mark and furmark without a problem.
  9. spoke to soon. it crashed again. I bought a battery backup to see if it helps. If that doesn't help i will rma the psu first.
