    Default Computer restarts every time I try to play a game

    Hey guys,
    Lately I've runned into a problem with my desktop. Almost everytime I launch a game the computer just restarts, no BSOD or anything (option for that unchecked), just restarts.
    Already did a clean install. removed all ram slots one by one, assembly the computer from scratch, blow the PSU.

    Did a benchmark to CPU and GPU both went fine

    Setup:
    R9 280X,
    AMD FX6300,
    12GB RAM DDR3 1600Mhz,
    WaterCooling Corsair Hydro H55,
    PSU Corsair 550W

    Running Windows 8.1

    The PSU is still on warranty time but I will be without a computer for that time, I dont know if I should buy another PSU or just put this one on RMA and wait because I'm not sure this problem is from PSU (hardware aint my strongest suit)

    Thanks

    Which Corsair PSU do you have?
    And which motherboard?

    *sigh*

    A $240 graphics card with a $40 PSU? Why don't people put more priority on their PSU?

    Under "advanced system settings", "startup and recovery", is "automatically restart" checked?

    Not a really good choice, the VRM isn't build for a CPU like yours.
    PSU: Corsair VS550
    Also not a good choice, really low-end.

    Both you motherboard and PSU could be the problem.

    He probably thought he did. It's a Corsair!!!11

    He already changed that.

    Yeah, I missed that because of the way it was stated:

    option for that unchecked

    It won't go boom if you don't overclock the CPU. That's all.
