Is there any pattern to the type of games you are playing when it crashes ? Does your computer re-start straight away or do you have to wait a few minutes ?
The reason I ask is that since you built a 'gaming PC' it is reasonable to assume you play games which make high demands on the system. These demands generate heat which can lead to thermal shutdowns if your cooling system is inadequate. It would be worth your while to run a utility like 'Speedfan' to keep an eye on your system temps while gaming, especially while running intensive games. Speedfan is a free download from BC -
its not a heating issue i run msi afterburner while i play so i can view gpu and cpu temps both never go above 60*c, actually yesterday i left my computer idle at the desktopm so no real high demand was going on and it still crashed i have a feeling its the psu thats the problem but idk. also it seems to be complete random when it does crash sometimes, i can be on for hours without crash other times it cant last a hour and the computer just black screens and a buzzing sound comes from my speakers, i have to hold the power button to get it to shut off the computer
update: just happened right now i was playing fallout 4 computer crashed and i kept clicking mouse 1 and computer restarted without me pressing the power button, checking event logs and errors every time my computer crashed it gives the same error code error 41 kernal-power so im guessing the psu is at fault here.
