PC shutting down and restarting during load of game, so far.


Hello all,

I just finished my build and running into issues when loading a single game so far. This is my build, all new parts with the exception of GPU:

CPU- Ryzen 5600X

GPU- Gigabyte GTX 1070 rev 1. (bought this used from friend)

RAM- Crucial Ballistix 2x8 GB 3600 DDR4 CL16 (outer package was damaged but sticks looks good)


Case- Corsair 4000D

CPU cooler- Scythe Fuma 2

Storage- WD 500 GB NVMe

PSU- Corsair RM750x

OS- Win10 64 bit (transfered from other computer)

Screen- Samsung 55 inch KU6300 4K TV for now until a monitor comes in

Everything is plugged into a surge protector.

Upon the transfer of data from HDD to M.2, I made sure no BSOD happened. Updated in the BIOS to utilize the 3600 MHz of RAM and no BSOD happened. Did a Windows update followed by an update of the GPU driver using the NVIDIA website. I downloaded my games from Steam/Blizzard, Call of Duty World at War and Diablo IV, which run with no problem. Decided to check out Outriders, downloaded the demo and upon loading of it, I get a black screen maybe 3 seconds into the load and my computer restarts with no BSOD. It happens every time I try to load Outriders and has no issues with COD:WaW and D4. My assumption is because the latter 2 games are not as intensive as Outriders. I was thinking of trying another newer game that is intensive to see if my rig shuts down.

I ran Heaven Benchmark 4.0, which I know nothing about and got these results:.

Any troubleshooting advice? Any idea what the culprit is? Need any more details?

On a side note, I have noticed that sometimes my TV gets really bright then gets gradually darker... My suspect is the video card.
