P.C. keeps restarting sometimes freezes

Ongoing problem that has been going on since P.C. was built. All hardware has been changed except; Gfx card, which has been tested by manufacture (no problem found), monitor, mouse and keyboard. Here is what I have inside my P.C; AMD FX 4100, ASRock 970 Pro3 Motherboard, Kingston DDR3 1333 Ram, Nvidia GTX 660 graphics card.

As I said everything has been change now apart from mouse, keyboard, Monitor and GFX card. Though the gfx has been tested and no problems detected. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

Re: P.C. keeps restarting sometimes freezes

What wattage is the power supply ?

Do the reboots and freezes happen randomly or when your gaming ect ?

Have you re-installed the OS ?

Check there is not a loose scruw trapped under the motherboard or one of the posts touching a track on the pcb. Are you using metal posts ?

Re: P.C. keeps restarting sometimes freezes

It may be a hardware related problem. May be your fan is not working properly. Consult with the hardware engineer.

Re: P.C. keeps restarting sometimes freezes

Sounds like a PSU problem. Carthwrite says everything has been changed except the video card. That implies that the mobo has been changed, so loose screws, etc, are likely not the problem, although it can't hurt to look. I would suggest a nice Antec 450 or 650W PSU.
