    PC restarts under heavy load(assuming) no BSOD

    This has been happening for about 2 months now. Whenever I am in a game or watchign a stream the PC completely turns off, not a traditional shut down and immediately restarts. Please let me know if you need more information

    Check for proper ventilation on the Graphics card and the CPU.

    I didn't realize how close I had the side fans next to my desk, it was basically pushing the hot air back inside of the case from the GPU. I will continue to monitor and update if I get another crash.

    Update. I monitored GPU using Furmark and noted via GPU Z that once my GPU reaches 70-73 degress my pc restarts. I have a 500W PSU. So I am really leaning towards my PSU can't handle it.
