PC randomly restarts when playing games only

Manite

It restarts randomly during gaming session (vermintide and other games like FC24), i first thought it was a psu problem so i ran to 2 stress tests (furmark and prime 95) with max power load and it didn't restart which made me exclude a psu issue. Then i kept switching around my RAM sticks and i noticed that both RAMs boot the pc when in they are in slot #2 but also not consistent (sometimes they just don't work), as for the other slots pc won't boot with either of the RAM sticks in any of the slots. When i had the 2 sticks in #2 & 4 at first it didn't recognize one of the sticks but now it recognizes both. So i'm stumped, where's the issue? One of my friends think it's a CPU issue.

Have you tried with just one RAM stick? Try both (in each slot if you have the time/energy)

Yes i have tried with each stick separately in each of the slots and basically pc boots only when either of the sticks is in slot #2 (i.e., both sticks work in slot #2)

Strange, do you have any spare components to test with?

Try playing FIFA with just one stick at a time. Ignore the lower FPS, confirm the stability

But you used to have both sticks and it was booting fine but now it only boots with one?
