Random shut down while gaming??

Troxt

I recently rebuilt my pc in a ITX form factor and following that while gaming I've been having problems where my pc will restart without warning.

The event logs show an Event ID 41 (Kernel-Power). 

 

I changed my motherboard, PSU, case and added an AIO, but everything else is the same as i had in my old build where i had no problems.

Ryzen 5800x,

Gigabyte 3070

Crucial Ram 16gb

 

I'm unsure if this is a motherboard problem or a PSU problem,

I bought a new cooler master PSU from amazon and got my motherboard second hand from eBay,

but I'm also having trouble registering my PSU with cooler master so I have been unsuccessful at trying to get another PSU to test.

 

Any ideas or theories would be a great help.

Can you test with the old psu or mobo to help diagnose?

I no longer have my old PSU so unfortunately I'm not able to do this. 

But thanks for the help

Maybe double check and reseat power cables. It sucks, but you could disassemble and then reassemble out of case, reseat the cpu. Just to be sure it's nothing to do with stuffing too much in a tiny form factor case, or a misseated connection

My first thought was dirty power management though, mobo or psu are the most likely culprits me thinks.

If it's only during gaming, double check graphics drivers before ripping anything apart. A big gpu power spike can shutdown a system.

If you have the old mobo, test it with the new psu

And temps were ?

99% chance the PSU isn't at fault anyway, it's most probably the mobo, RAM or CPU in that order, if not just overheating (common issue in ITX small cases)

Temps were fine around 70-80 C. I'm hoping that the PSU isn't at fault.

 

I'm going to try a full rebuild and see if that helps if not i might try a new mobo.

I've been thinking of upgrading CPU for a while and i i cant fix this issue it might be the push i need to upgrade.

 

Thanks though.

UPDATE:

 

I've rebuilt my PC and launched CS2 to see if the error continued. It did.

Event ID 41, pc restarted.

following this my PC restarted and blue screened with a Hypervisor Error,

and event viewer started to show an Event id 46 saying a fatal hardware error with the memory. (this is new)

 

Could it be worthwhile to replace the memory and see if this helps? 

or would it be better to just get a new mobo and CPU as I would be upgrading to ddr5 anyways by doing this?
