Windows 7: Brand new Build. Random restarts under load and idle

Brand new Build. Random restarts under load and idle

Hi, im not sure if this is the right section but here we go;

i5 4690k, MSI Z97 PC MATE mobo, 212 evo cooler, MSI GTX 970, basic 8gb ram,Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze psu

The main problem im having is random restarts. For instance i just ran heaven benchmark and my PC randomly reset itself after it had completed.(Which would suggest it was under load or struggling with power? But this has also happend when idle) I watched the temps of my card and cpu (60-64 for my card and 30-35 for my CPU). Everything appears to be working fine, fans etc. But upon restarting it came to the windows logo screen, then restarted again, and again until it shut off completely and would not turn on for around 30 seconds. What could be the problem with this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you

Hi Randy44

Welcome to seven forums. If I were an Admin I would move your post to the BSOD thread.

Those guys seem likely to be better equipped for the issues you're raising here. May I suggest you try your luck there?
