As the title says my PC started rebooting during games, and after running many stress tests and following suggestions, I finally found a way to replicate the problem. When I run OCCT PSU stress test, my PC reboots within a second. It was unexpected since running Prime 95 together with Furmark didn't cause any reboots.

Anyway, do you think the issue is my PSU? I already have a new graphics card arriving within 10 days. How should I go from here to find the issue? My specs here:http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Xhn9D3

I underclocked my GPU and the OCCT PSU test doesn't seem to cause any reboots.

Stock -->             Gpu VCore:1.012V Core clock: 880 Memory Clock: 2100

Underclocked--> Gpu VCore: 0.95V  Core Clock:500 Memory Clock:1500

 

Btw GPU temperature with either setup doesn't go above 55C if you are worried about overheating.

 

What does it mean? Should I try running tests under different settings like CPU OC'ed and such? The software already saves plots of a wide variety of voltages/temperatures/clocks, as well as taking a screenshot showing all, so I can post them here if anyone is willing to take a look. Here is the screenshot for underclocked settings:http://imgur.com/PS6GmdD
