Bit of a wierd one,

 

Updated Motherboard to AM4 and a 5600x , i tested it overclocked with stock cooler with all cores at 4700 from 3700 stable and only 81 degrees. Can play cyberpunk maxed out for hours, no issues.

 

BUT, the bloody pc restarts randomly just watching video! The only thing changed is the MOBO and CPU and if they can run massively overclocked why the hell is it restarting ???

Do you get a bluescreen? or does it just restart? 

Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration in the browser settings?

no bluescreen, just restarts. does it with or without hardware acceleration.... If i dont watch amazon prime or you tube on the 2nd monitor i can run full on max settings with games all day. I tried uninstalling drivers used a driver cleaner and re-installing. Made no difference. This Only started since i put new motherboard in, its just so damn specific. Only crashes when playing video.

If i run games and video, the video stutters like hell, and on a 2080rtx ti, that should not happen. I will try the old 980gtx and see if that crashes on video. if it doesnt might have to ruin it in the other PCI slot.

Try swapping the cables from your GPU into a new slot on the PSU, assuming it's a modular PSU

To late. I am without a pc . It filled the room with blue smoke. It is dead I have had to order a new one.

Luckily the 2080ti is OK as I had it out , although I did kill a 980gtx tho.

Mobo caught fire and took out the new cpu  and nvme drives, along with the psu as well as the RAM.  I just ordered a new pc but have to wait until the 25th

Damn right!

I've never really considered it, but maybe we should have fire extinguishers in our homes!

If you do so, make sure you get one that can deal with electrical fires. (there are different types)

Bought one after I got the 3d printers. Also have a smaller one in the car.

I have a fire blanket in the kitchen and extinguisher in the bedroom. The one i have is powder i think, gotta buy a new one i think, this one might be expired.

My smoke alarms always go off when i have steak night. Goid thing they are 3,6 meters up so I cannot temporarily turn them off....

Powder is good for oil fires and electrical, the blanket is also good for oil.

CO2 is good for all electrical and standard house fires.

Powder is now frowned upon in the home as dependent on the age of the unit, it could contain some very nasty chemicals.

We only use water and Co2 at work, as suggested by the Fire Regulations. (Yes i am the company Health and safety officer, and i have a degree in Occupational Health and safety .....Most boring thing i have ever done .....)

Just don’t use the foam on the electrical fire by accident 🥴

If you have one in the kitchen causing a problem, try swapping it out for just a heat detector instead of a smoke detector.

Looks a bit cheap for a Pete-Machine to be honest. Low mid range CPU, mid range motherboard?
