I've recently encountered a weird issue where my PC would reboot for no reason and without producing any minidumps. Basically it can happen at any time even while my PC is idle. When it happens the PC abruptly shuts down and then tries to boot several times (it switches on and off by itself before even getting to POST) before actually doing it.
The first thing i did was check my memory with memtest86+ 5.01 and it shutdown at least 3 times while i was running it. It crashed twice while i checked all 4 planks without completing a single pass, and once while i was checking 3 planks of memory after it completed at least 3 passes. I thought that i found my culprit but unfortunately after i put the planks back in and checked them again... nothing happened. It passed both with 1 plank, 3 planks and 4 planks without any issues.
My system specs are:
Intel Core i7-6700K, 4200 MHz (42 x 100)
Asus Maximus VIII Hero
Corsair CMK32GX4M4A2400C14 32697 MB (DDR4-2133 DDR4 SDRAM) which im running at xmp1 profile and i had set it to xmp2 previously. The pc rebooted both on xmp1 and xmp2.
Thermaltake 850DPS G PCU
I was wondering what else could be the culprit? Im assuming it can only be a hardware issue since it rebooted during memtest.
Im also using quite old APC UPS but im only using surge protection sockets. Could that be a reason why the pc reboots? It doesn't really make any noises and continues working normally when the pc reboots though.
