Default PC restarting

In the middle of a game the game would would stop responding for maybe 2-3 secs then my monitor would shut down and the pc would restart, what could be causing this? Thanks

Running everything in stock, no overclocking.

BIOS is 1302, GPU driver is 320.18 according to AI suite & geforce exp respectively.
I have 2 140mm intake from the front of the case and I'm running it at 12V right now.
1 exhaust at the back and 2 fans for the swiftech h220(pull config).

Thanks

Some users have been reporting crashes with the 320.18 drivers - I would rule that out first.

I would also check your VRM temps - I've seen way too many Asus boards with the plastic cover still on the thermal pads of the heatsinks.

I think there's a new driver, I'll try to update to that new one and report back.
