Random Restarts While Gaming. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Hi there theres an issue that happened to me way back in late July and that was my computer randomly rebooted when playing a game called Overwatch, now at the time my pc would only randomly reboot itself during Overwatch and did fine with other games. Fast forward to now and it randomly reboots for every game. I heard it was a PSU issue so I upgraded, still happens. Heard it was a RAM issue so I replaced, still happens. Heard it was a cooling issue so I added more fans.... STILL HAPPENS. Somebody please help me, I dont get a bsod and I have already made sure I have 1 audio driver, messed with power settings and it still randomly resets. BTW when it resets no fans in the PC stop spinning nor do any fan LEDs shut off. Please help me, Im tired of spending my money, thank you.

GPU: Zotac GTX 760 2gb
CPU: AMD fx-8350

  1. Your Sentey PSU, is that the new PSU or the old one?
    If it's the new one then how you came to buy it?

    It is the new PSU and I bought it because it is 725w, my first was 335w.
  3. Best answer
    You didn't do any backround checks on PSU before you bought it? Didn't read any reviews about it?

    As far as i can tell, your new PSU is Tier five PSU (the worst PSU Tier there is). With this crappy PSU, there's no wonder why you still experience the issues that are caused by the PSU.

    Here's a PSU Tier list:
    Go and get a Tier two PSU, preferably Tier one if you could afford it.

    Anything from Seasonic is great.
    For your needs, a 500W range PSU will do just fine. I suggest either a S12II-520 or M12II-520 EVO.
    (Btw, i've been using S12II-520 for several years now, without any issues whatsoever.)
  4. Like others mentioned, new PSU is low quality model. Generally, a bad PSU or high temps are most likely culprits for reboots during gaming and a system under load conditions. What are your GPU temps like?
