Just a heads up that I won't be working on anything for what could be quite a while.

My computer has recently started to shut down and/or restart by itself. I've been here before, and it generally points to a hardware issue. Normally it's the power supply or the motherboard. I know it's not the memory, as I ran memtest86 on it the other day. 3 (nearly four) passes and no issues, so I'd say it's clear. It's not an overheating issue, and I'm pretty sure that it's not a GPU issue as that would have freaked out when I ran a stress test on it.

As luck would have it, I have a new motherboard just waiting to be installed. I got that the other week, but it won't be installed until I get a new SSD drive so my partner can get me to play Elder Scrolls Online with her. No idea when that's going to happen though, and even when it does happen, if it's the power supply and not the motherboard causing the issue, then I won't be working on anything until I can get a new power supply (and it won't be a f***ing Antec one this time).

There's really no point in working on anything while the issue persists. I certainly don't want to be rendering my final render and the computer gets its freak on part way through. If it isn't related to any of my hardware and I resolve the issue soon, then hooray. Otherwise, I'll be out of action until I manage to replace whichever part is causing the problem. :sighs:
