Default My friend computer restart by it self?

Hey,
My friend computer is restarting by it self, a lot more when he play games. I'm 100% sure it's not heating, cuz everything is nice and cool.

But, Windows restart often with a BSOD.

How can I know what causes that? Maybe it's bad RAM?

Windows might be restarting because of a error and "Automatically Restart" if there's a error function might be turned on...

Bahh... I rechecked it all, and there was an option set to Turbo in BIOS, which was overclocking it.

I haven't seen the turbo function for almost 7-8 years on a computer

turbo in this case is apparently an AI overclocking utility. the old turno was to enable/disable L2 cache.
