    Hi, I've been having this problem for a few months where my computer will restart while I'm playing games, usually starcraft 2. I got a new heatsink, and i know my gpu isn't overheating too.

    I use a razer deathadder mouse and a microsoft sidewinder x4 keyboard, diablotek RPM 950w psu

    It usually restarts while I'm doing something with my mouse that causes the screen to move (like scrolling)

    I don't know if it might be the power supply, maybe motherboard? i got new ram so i know it's not that, and i can stress test my cpu and gpu for long periods of time without a restart. But in games it restarts whenever it feels like.

    Is there any hope for me? :p

    It could be a virus. Check it for malware and scan it with antivirus
