Since installing the Oculus Rift my computer has been randomly rebooting and crashing on its own. No BSOD. I tried to search for similar symptoms online. Most are saying that either its the USB port drawing too much power, or the power supply is tapping out causing the PC to fail leading to the PC rebooting as a safeguard. However most if not all that are claiming this are running a 650 watt PSU or lower. My system is running a 1000 watt power supply (EVGA 1000w G2) which is fairly new (about a year worth of usage). I am not running SLI. Currently using a single GTX980, i7 5930K CPU (with water cooling), 16Gb of RAM, x99 Asus ROG Rampage V Extreme mobo. I am running Windows 10 OS at the moment. Graphic drivers have been updated. Rift firmware is up to date. Hardware temps seem to be below 40 degrees.
I think my system specs are definitely over the minimum requirements so I am puzzled by the issues I have been seeing. As a test I disconnected the Rift cables, and uninstalled the software/drivers. Since then the PC has been more stable. Every once in a while the PC will reboot on its own (issue only started occurring after I got the Rift). It does not seem to happen as frequently after uninstalling which is the good news. This makes me suspect more and more perhaps I have a faulty power supply, but I am not 100% convinced. This has been very frustrating and wanted to see if anyone else has been having similar issues. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
