More about : restarts playing games

are you getting BSOD? if so turn off auto restart after an error.
Monitor your temperatures.

Could be all sorts of faults but the 3 main ones are:

1 - CPU Overheating
2 - Power Supply not stable enough
3 - Hard drive fault (virus, corrupt or even fault)

One possibility.

I did have the same problem with my newest PC a while ago. I thought it was the PSU (had a 550W). Got a 800W (which blew out from a brown out) and same thing. Temps were fine.

In my case it turned out that the mobo was setting the memory voltage and timings wrong. Had to set them manually. Once I did that it was all good.

Might want to check that out in your BIOS.

If the computer turns off and restarts on its own, it is the motherboard. If it turns off and doesn't restart on its own, its overheating. If the screen freezes, it's the gpu. If the screen flickers, its the psu. (Note: You psu is large enough. I run 4 hard drives plus all the extras on a 350 watt power supply.)

It may also be a PSU fault.
