    Thank George...

    Unfortunately, that has not been the case and I should have known in advance. Once I've got to the BIOS, the CPU temperature was 87 degree Fahrenheit.

    About the power supply...

    A power supply for an ATX motherboard is the same regardless, if the MB is for Intel or AMD, right?

    The reason for asking.... If the new power supply does not fix the issue, then need a new motherboard, CPU and might as well DDR4 memory. I'd rather go AMD in that case....
    ATX is ATX regardless of whether it's Intel or AMD.
    As long as the motherboard and case support this form factor of PSU.

    In other words, an AXT AMD motherboard or Intel Motherboard can use any type of ATX PSU.
    The only constraints, would be the wattage needed to supply enough power to all the components.

    When you were viewing the bios was the computer environment stable?
    Are you able to reboot the computer into safe mode?
    Hold down the shift key while clicking restart > open windows advanced troubleshooting menu > safe mode or safe mode with networking.

    Report into the thread whether there are or aren't unexpected shutdowns or restarts while in safe mode.

    The system is not stable, even in the BIOS.

    Booting in the BIOS had the same result, after a short time period the system just rebooted itself. It does that 4-5 times, after which, the system halts on its own. The first time it boots in to the BIOS after a longer time period, there's just enough time to get the MB and CPU model numbers and it reboots on its own. There's no time for changing setting, or anything else for that matter.

    It's not a Windows issue, I could work with that, but it's hard to do anything when the system keeps rebooting on its own...

    It does on the surface, but it's not related to cooling for the system...

    The short time in the BIOS showed 87 degree Fahrenheit temperature. The system has three case fans and two on the Noctua heatsink. Running the system with open case makes no difference either. BTW, this system had not been overclocked, it's been running with the stock/default setting for the last 6-7 years...

    I am just not certain, if the power supply resets itself or something else going on? It could be the motherboard and the CPU as well. It's hard to tell without system being stable in the BIOS...

    Finally got around to replace the power supply for this system with a Seasonic 550FX Focus Gold. The fully modular wiring of the old power supply didn't quite fit the new power supply, a shade difference prevented locking the plug, ended up replacing the wiring as well.

    The system is stable, there are no issues.

    Thank you all for your help and guidance...
