    Hello @irishwheels , welcome to Ten Forums.


    Try re-seating the RAM, and make sure it's in slots 2 and 4 counting away from the CPU.

    And, as @AddRAM has mentioned... check your temps. Improper application of thermal compound could also cause this.
    Okay I changed the ram to 2 and 4

    My temps are all great I use CAM software to check always

    Is this that circle disk-looking battery on the motherboard?

    Boot the PC from a WinPE or Linux USB device and see whether the same problem will arise.

    I know Irish's MOBO is new but am wondering if a ropey CMOS battery might be a cause or a board jumper if any?

    I gotta be honest none of those would really causes a system reboot or are even needed. I've been building PC's every 3-4 years since 1998 with my last build in my system specs coming in 2019 and I've yet to come across a board that needed a CMOS battery out the box; nor did it need resetting (removed and reinstalled). And I highly doubt most who build seen it. Is it possible... anything is possible, though the probability of it is low.

    Anyway one sure fire way to check battery status is by observing date and time - if the time and date in the BIOS doesn't stick - and you'll know immediately as the date would resort to something like Jan 1, 2000 if the battery was the issue. Same for the BIOS settings... if they stick the battery is good. If not, yeah, the battery is bad.

    Edit: I see the OP checked the battery and nothing's changed. Not surprised there.

    With that I'd check...

    • All power cable connections; check that all required connections are actually connected.
    • Screws securing the motherboard to the case to insure there isn't a grounding issue
    • checking the power switch connections
    • Check that the clear thin plastic cover is removed from the CPU cooler (seen that happen).
    • Check the the CPU has adequate thermal paste (causing a heating issue)
    • Check both CPU and CPU cooler is properly seated (causing a heating issue)
    • Check CPU cooler fan cable is connected to the motherboard (causing a heating issue)
    • Check the RAM is properly seated.
    • check all other hardware is properly seated to the board and that no grounding issues are there.
    • In the BIOS make sure to click/enable "Load Optimized Defaults" so the motherboard has a base setting to work with the hardware that's installed.

    It would also do some good to go over the board's owner's manual to insure things are properly setup.

    Let us know.

    Looks like you might need to flash the BIOS. The latest BIOS is 4301.
    I put your parts (from your specs) in PCpartpicker, and got the warning...

    Might be hard to do with only a 15 minute window to work in.



    What CPU did you upgrade from?

    So, I was curious but one thing I haven't done was change out all the old PSU cords... In an attempt to save time.

    So for example, the SATA cables are the same, 2 years old.
    and the cables that connect to my lights, fan lights / light strips..
    GPU cables are the same

    CPU cable is new
    and the main MOBO cable is new.

    I figured if it starts up that shouldnt be the problem right??

    I updated the BIOS to 4301 or what ever the new one is.

    My old CPU was the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor

    Ok then... how about your CPU cooler. Are you SURE the pump is working properly?

    It almost seems like the CPU is overheating. Hence the 15 minutes before the comp messes up.

    I mean if it wasn't I would overheat right?? My CPU temps have never gone over 65C,

    Im at 42C right now no games on

    Try this...

    Unhook all the drives except the OS drive, or even unhook ALL the drives. See if you can just stay in the BIOS without losing your screen (only use one screen), for like 1/2 or 1 hour..

    Also might try with just one stick of RAM in slot 2 counting away from the CPU.


    Btw, in your BIOS the F5 key sets your BIOS to defaults.

    Depending on when the Matisse CPU's were released the OP may already have the appropiate BIOS, which may not be the latest BIOS, but one prior to it.

    That said, nothing wrong with grabbing the latest BIOS (assuming the board doesn't already have it) for a new build
