A couple of weeks ago I put together a new computer. Since then I have been suffering unpredictable crashes where my computer restarts with no warning when playing games. Initially I assumed it was something to do with the game I was playing (red dead redemption 2). This week when I got cities skylines 2 (which runs fine otherwise) it would only let me play a few minutes before it started rebooting.
Since then I have been trying everything i could think of to isolate the issue, but I have had no luck. Sometimes I can only play for a few seconds before it crashes, other times I play for hours with no issues. So far, I have tried the following:
- Updated motherboard BIOS to the latest none beta version
- Tried to replicate the issue outside gaming with phoronix-test-suites stress-runs ( I assumed that if it were a power supply issue or overheating that with enough load it would trigger, but no)
- Lowered the RAM speed
- Run memtest
- Scowered journalctl, but nothing jumps out
