Hi guys, recently I just finsihed building my new rig and here is my list of specs

Mobo: Asrock extreme 4
CPU: i5-3570k
Heatsink: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo
GPU: Asus Gtx 560
Ram: Gskill 1600 8GB (4 gb x 2)
SSD: Samsung 830 128Gb
HDD: WD Blue 1 TB
PSU: Corsair GS600 V2

When I play games my computer it will decide to restart within 5 minutes of playing. So I went forum surfing and read somewhere about stress testing my GPU and I found a program called OCCT. On the default settings of my GTX560 on a stress test it will cause a computer restart within 2 minutes of doing the stress test. So I was convinced it was a GPU fault right? Or is it something esle?

Also when it restarts, there is no BSOD or any notice, it just restarts like if I was to press the restart button on my case.

Any help will be great! Thanks

What are you cpu temps when it restarts?

Sounds like it's overheating, you possibly do not have the heatsink attached correctly.

I just did a stress test with CoreTemp and RealTemp opened to cross reference the temps and before the restart the cpu was no higher than 35C
