Hey everyone, I built my PC last January with the following stats:

i7-6700k
Asus Maximus VIII Hero Alpha
Evga GTX 970 FTW
16gb Corsair Vengeance DDR4 (2x8)
Corsair HX850i 80+ platinum PSU
SAMSUNG 850 PRO 512GB
WD Black 5TB
X-fi Titanium Sound Card
Windows 10 Professional 64bit

Until August I had zero problems with the system. I began experiencing sudden power-off reboots (like the cord was pulled) while gaming. The event viewer said Kernel Power 41. This was completely sporadic and random, I could go for 5 days of heavy gaming with no issues and then suddenly it would happen again. My first thought was overheating, but all my temps are fine. I've spent countless hours online reading forums and trying to diagnose this problem to no avail.

Now it has become much worse. The rebooting is no longer tied to gaming and happens very frequently, sometimes even becoming stuck in a loop where I have to cut the power to get it to stop. After letting the PC sit for a while, I can reboot it and it will work fine for several hours, sometimes even the whole day.

I have no idea what is causing this. My power supply? Please help

Hi there,

Hmmmm.....do you have another spare/compatible power supply that you can test on your computer?

It's possible that the issue could be the power supply.

Hey sorry for taking so long to reply, I ordered a new psu (seasonic prime 850w) and have just installed it. Will update on whether the issue is resolved or not

My System


Asus surge protection in the BIOS is not needed and can cause issues as described.
