Hello, I just built a new computer with the specs below and have been having problems where it randomly restarts w/o a bsod. I have unchecked that auto restart button or w/e in order to attempt to bring up a bsod before it restarts, however none comes up. In the event viewer it has Event 41, Kernel-Power with all of this:


BugcheckCode 0
BugcheckParameter1 0x0
BugcheckParameter2 0x0
BugcheckParameter3 0x0
BugcheckParameter4 0x0
SleepInProgress false
PowerButtonTimestamp 0

This seems to only happen when I am playing Warcraft 3 or Starcraft 2. I just updated my vid card driver and was hit with another random restart. The first thing that comes to mind is the PSU, but I don't want to go out and buy a new PSU and have the same things happen. Any ideas/suggestions? THANKS!
