Has anyone experienced any anomalies with their PC just randomly shutting down when gaming since doing any bios updates?
Ive even rolled back a few BIOS versions and I still experience the issues.
For insight I performed a mem test, ran cinemench did all the typical reg scans/updates and even installed a new OS (clean install) from W10 to W11
Does this happen with the default settings for the CPU in BIOS (PBO off and no undervolting)?
People used to complain from shutdowns when their system is idle (I think that undervolting was found as the culprit then) but never when under load like gaming.
Do these shutdowns happen with a BSOD?
Now I remember that I had such numerous issues with BSODs last summer during gaming and it turned out that my PSU was faulty, couldn't handle the sporadic peaks from the GPU.
It only shuts down during gaming and not any other time, I never ran PBO but I did undervolt it, although I still experienced the shutdowns when everything was set to optimised defaults except DOCP on the memory.
I have also changed PSU's and still experienced this issue, I have now turned DOCP off and see if anything happens.
As for it BSODing, no it doesnt BSOD at all, the PC just restarts, like it was powered down instantly.
My CPU and other basic details are listed in my signature.
I can't see the spec of your PSU in your signature.
I can only advise you to use separate PCIe cables for each connector on the GPU, it might help (most PCIe cables share two connectors but in some cases they may not be able to take the load). I don't have any other clues why your PC may restart during gaming but very likely it is because of a component under stress."
Just a follow up to our previous conversation with the PC just randomly resetting,
I changed the CPU to a 5600X and I have not had any crashes and it has been almost 2 months now.
I also placed the 5800X into my other PC that has slower memory timings (G.Skill 3600) and an Asus B550M mobo, 850W PSU and RTX3080 12GB and not one crash either.
So im taking a stab in the dark here but im starting to think the 5800X wasnt able to handle the tighter memory timings of the memory im using along with maybe some mobo issues with the combination I had because as I stated above the 5600X and with everything else set exactly how I had it with the 5800X, I havent had an issue.
