    Question Computer (motherboard?) switches on and off fast after playing a game

    Recently after having installed 3080 FE on my Rampage IV Extreme motherboard (I had had dual 970 before), with 4930k CPU and with a 1200W OCZ power supply, I get these random shutdowns. The computer clicks like this (see the link below) for a while, then goes off, then on, and works again. The card works perfectly fine, but these issues happen. First happened with Doom Eternal, and then now with Quake 2 RTX.

    That thing flashing is the AIO cooler.

    A few notes:
    1. The resolutions are perfect... No apparent bottlenecking or any other issues. I'm getting a new computer later, but for now I'd like to understand this.
    2. Temperatures are normal. I measured them with both GPU-Z and RealTemp. No spikes are unusual temperature values. GPU ~ 80, and CPU ~ 60.
    3. This has nothing to do with how long I play. It just happens at times very often, and at times never happens.
    4. With or without OC, this happens.

    Any ideas what this could be?

    Have you tried another PSU? That would be the first culprit I'd check.
