So I just moved house and set up my computer, the problem I am facing is that after using my computer for about 5 minutes it shut down and went into a power cycle as in was continuing to shut down and power up (sometimes reaching windows screen, sometimes not that far). If i leave it in this power down power up state eventually it will just come good and start working as per normal and may even run for hours or until I am finished with using it. I have searched around for all possible solutions and explanations to this but am struggling to find any that match my problem. Sometimes the computer will work fine. Sometimes it won't.
The Motherboard, CPU, RAM, Harddrive and GPU are all a month old. Power supply is only thing that isn't, although I can't get enough consistency in the problem to actually test anything.
What I have tried,
Reseat all Power cables, GPU, RAM and Data cables
Remove a stick of ram (tested both sticks)
Ran without GPU (Seemed to work but was still unsure as the problem is on and off)
Tried running with just 1 monitor not 2
unplugged all HDD except main one
I am at a loss apart from trying a new PSU which will take some time as I live a considerable distance from a computer parts store.
CPU- I7 - 6700 3.4GHz
MotherBoard - Asrock B150 GAMING K4/HYPER
RAM - G.Skill RIPJAWS 4 2x4GB
GPU - NVIDIA GTX 1080
PSU - Coolmaster GX 650W
OS - Windows 10
I should state it also does not matter what i am doing as to when it crashes.
