I recently built a computer with parts I ordered from Amazon, and it always shuts down and restarts at least 3 times per game of Valorant or CS randomly. Even while trying to cleanly reinstall windows with a USB, it woudl restart while I was trying to hook it up to wifi, create a user and a password, etc. It only shuts down during downloads/videogames, but it is getting really annoying as I spent a fortune getting these parts and I built it all myself. Event viewer records an event 41 every time it happens, but I don't know what could be causing this issue, and I don't know if it's a simple PSU repurchase or a simple windows copy would fix it, but should I come in to a Microcenter and come get it fixed?

Check and see if a BIOS update would address any of those issues, also see if you can run a memtest. Does it just power off, or are you getting an error?
@Vaganza I updated my BIOS and it made the crashes happen more frequently. The gpu light remains on and the fans keep running while it restarts so there's that. I keep getting the Kernel power error in event viewer (event id 41). I am taking it to Microcenter on Saturday but I hope they can fix it :(
Ugh, Do you know what your CPU temps look like, a event ID 41 simply means it shut down unexpectedly.
