Random screen hangs/sys restarts when gaming

Recently been having random screen hangs or quick hang and auto restart on my system. This triggers during gaming only.

No issues with PC during normal use. Event logs dont show any specific error and sometimes nothing is logged just before restart.

Is this likely cpu/mothernoard issue?

Things to check or try:

Reseating your ram (try different ram slots, or just 1 stick at a time)

Download hwmonitor and check your cpu temp when you game, might be a case of dried thermal paste overheating your cpu

It could also be your psu that is aging and causing problems, not supplying enough power under loads

Will event log show cpu overheat warning if it is truly a case of dried thermal paste? Or can i only monitor using HWmonitor

Nope, I do not overclock.

Sys spec:
Asrock B85m pro with i5-4460 and 2x4gb crucial value ram
650w superflower leadex psu and rtx 2060 gpu

I checked bios right after i had to restart a couple of times and each time CPU and mb temps are well below 60 deg.

One thing i do notice is often after a freeze or auto restart, power to my usb ports (kb and mouse) seem to be lagging. My kb and mouse only power up after the windows loading screen is shown, so basically i am unable to go into bios right after restart.

If the problem not due to overheat, maybe due to bugs with your softwares (driver, win 10 or game).
