Computer restarts after a couple minutes into gaming and FurMark stress test.

Hello, I don't know why but since I've upgraded my PC, I've been able to play Watch Dogs 2 on ultra settings and any other games out there on max setting perfectly fine. That is until a few weeks into the build, my PC started to restart after a couple minutes into a couple of the games. I've done a DDU drive uninstaller and re-installed the drives and ran a FurMark test, in result it crashed within 30 seconds into the test. I'm now suspecting that my PSU isn't sufficient enough to run GTX 1080 SLI.

Thank you, Gooobee!

Specs:
- GTX 1080 SLI
- Xeon E3-1241 V3
- EVGA G2 Series 750W PSU
- MSI Z97 Gaming 5 Motherboard
- G.Skill X Series 2x8 GB Ram
- Cryorig H7 CPU Cooler

    I would check your temps on your CPU personally. As that PSU should be reasonably solid. Run something like MSI afterburner and see what temps you are getting in FurMark before your pc restarts its self
  2. Sounds good, I was actually checking my temperatures and they were mediocre, I remembered this happened to me once and I just replaced the thermal paste and I was all good again, I also increased my fan's RPMs, nothing restarted so far! :D
