    Whenever I launch any game and play for 2-3 minutes it crashes the whole PC. This issue only started last month. Also I got my GPU replaced last week, so it can't be GPU. I checked thermals during gaming and it's normal on GPU, CPU & Mobo. PC is little less then 2 years old.

    CPU : AMD Ryzen 5 3600x
    Mobo : Asus TUF Gaming X570 Plus
    RAM : 8GB X 2 A-Data XPG 3200Mhz CL16
    SSD : Silicon Power 1TB NVMe M.2 Gen 3
    GPU : Zotac GTX 1660 Twin Fan
    PSU : Corsair 550W

    Where should I start ? Coz it might be motherboard or CPU or PSU, it's hard to figure out as I don't have 2nd desktop to switch parts & find the faulty hardware.

    WHEA errors are PCIE related.

    Try putting your GPU in another PCIE slot and test.

    "I checked thermals during gaming and it's normal on GPU, CPU & Mobo."

    Thats of little use to us.
    An afterburner trace of temps would help, or hard figures.

    My first thought was inadequate voltage or too much heat - which could be voltage far too high or bad cooling.
    Not enough power could figure as well.

    I got new Antec HCG750 Gold PSU and I ran OCCT power test which stresses both cpu & gpu at same time.

    CPU temps stayed fixed at 90 C as the stock cooler is garbage. Anyways at 36min mark the whole pc froze and I had to force restart using power button.

    is this normal behavior ?

    Wraith spire stock cooler. 90 C is under stress test normal gaming it won't go above 62 C not even when I am encoding. This OCCT stress test is harsh and put unrealistic load on CPU. Normally I have never seen CPU more then 75 C even when its 40 degrees temp outside.

    Guru3d have review on 3600x. I don't think they report 90 ever. Yes, around 70 is what it should be.

    Just Google ur issue and go from there: CPU freeze while on stress test/ while on gaming

    Reinstall Windows and run on one storage drive. Ur M2 or HDD.
    Worst case scenario it's motherboard. :(

    Some say it's PSU, really sux u replaced it and problem still persists.

    Also I am using razer orochi v2 mouse, the cursor on the monitor freezes for 2-3 secs randomly 3-4 times per day and when I press keyboard button to check the system is taking input of keys which means PC is not freezing just the mouse cursor hangs. I tested with other usb ports but same issue.

    Does this mean fault is in motherboard?

    Update : I ran OCCT CPU test and core 5 is giving errors. I am attaching log also.

    I got cpu replaced but still the same problem. What to do next?
    Change motherboard next if still issue doesn't fix then RAM then SSD?

    Best thing to do is not assume hardware is faulty until you are either sure it is or cannot progress further.
    ie an unstable CPU doesnt mean it is faulty! Many things can affect a CPUs stability.

    First thing to do is reset the CMOS.
    To do this, unplug the PSU from the mains and unplug it from the motherboard. Remove the CMOS battery.
    You cant skip those steps, be sure to do them all.
    Leave it overnight to be sure it has fully reset.
    In the morning plug everything back in and see if that makes any difference.

    If that doesnt help:
    Get a spare hard drive or SSD and install a fresh copy of Windows on it. Dont add anything to it yet, nothing at all!
    If the problem has now stopped you know its to do with either the OS configuration, a driver or some other software installed on your PC.
    Then you can slowly add your software/drivers etc and see if the problem returns at some point.

    Let us know how you get on.

    try downloading bluescreenview and running it, might show if a driver is causing the restarts

    Dodgy motherboard, don't use your computer until you've tested another motherboard, the faulty motherboard could damage your hardware (in this case could likely damage your CPU if it hasn't already or it could be the previous CPU damaged the motherboard). I've had a motherboard kill a CPU before (twice as well, faulty revision motherboards from Gigashyte).

    Do you experience any problems starting the PC at all?

    Try us.
    Post some detailed pictures of your computer.
    Put some paper sheets around, we need to see all hardware parts and maybe something shows up that you somehow missed.
