Did you rule out overheating ?

Is it automatically rebooting? or you have to manually reboot after each failure.

Operating system ?

When the PC becomes too hot, it might be set to reboot.

Does the pc shut down, or crashes? ie. do you get the screen "saving your settings", "shutting down" etc, or does it just blank out?

It's like hitting the reset button.

But thing is, that I never had this before. My PC ran good for
about 4 - 5 months and now this problem has occured.

1 more question,

Can overclocking overheat my pc?
I havent touched anything, my friend build this pc it has run very well for a long time. I dont know how to lower overclocking. It's overclocking at 800%.

Yes, 800% it could normally take it easily. But I just want to lower it.

Any suggestions?

Check this is accurate. For me it is not.

This CPU information is very very strange. Usually overclock lowers life of the chip. Speaking of it's life if it is 15 years if you lower it to let's say 8 years it is not so big deal anyway. You will change system for that time.

Overclock is not easy to do and have to be done carefully. You can damage the chip and if you do it you void warranty. So if you do not know what you do better do not do it. Some products come clocked by manifacturer.

Overclock comes with more heat because you usually try to make CPU to run on bigger frequencies. This result more performance, but more heat too.

Sometimes the battery that keeps bios memory powered stops to work. If that happens you can see some instability sometimes, because bios can forget his settings and get some default one which may be not so good. So this can be added into check list too.

I think your old 300 W PSU is maybe enough for you're computer if you don't overclock it. Overclocking gives a small performance boost and increases power consumption a lot. But if you replace it, it make sense to buy at least 400+W PSU.
