When i play high graph games, it just reboots- n0 errors or anything, just turns off fo about a second then reboots.. Nothing is oc'd. Temps seem well below overheat. Please see my setup in my profile. Any ideas?

I would say this is your problem... Raidmax rx-730 ss psu

Raidmax are for the most part POOR QUALITY power supplies. When you are stressing your system, the PSU doesn't have enough power to keep it running, so it shuts down to protect the sytem. I would recommend upgrading your PSU to a Corsair, Antec, OCZ/PC Power&Cooling or Seasonic power supply.

I second the cheap power supply. Raidmax is crap, especially when it comes to power supplies. Always buy something reliable. Zalman and Silverstone also makes great power supplies.

I would not game on a computer that randomly reboots like that. It will cause more damage to the computer especially the hard drive.
