My System Specs

Lightbulb Random restarts

So I begin having this problem less than a week ago, random restarts when I'm playing my games. I want to know what are the possible reason why this is happening in regards with HARDWARES. I heard that most possibly it is regarding the RAM, by switching the slots it will solve my problem.

MY HARDWARE:
  • CORSAIR CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9
  • GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 rev1.3
  • GIGABYTE GV-N550OC-1GI
  • GIGABYTE Superb E570
  • Intel i5-2500k

Might also check your GPU/CPU/system temps.
