PC keeps freezing then rebooting when running games!

Ever since I got the 5700 xt, my computer overheats and is forced to reboot. I run games like COD. At first, everything was working fine for a while. The screen now flickers and sometimes goes green before rebooting. Is this becuase my CPU is overheating or the PSU isnt strong enough?

Build.

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600

Gpu: Msi 5700 xt

Cooler: Kraken x52

PSU:Corsair Vseries 650

More likely graphics card.

5000 series from AMD is known for those type of issues.

Is there anything I can do about it?

You can try updating drivers if you haven't already done so.

Past that your looking at trying to get an RMA approved by MSI if your still within warranty.

AMD hasn't been able to solve the issues in almost a year so it's unlikely to clear up in the future.

Sounds like it could be the GPU. Your card is known to have problems. You could try RMAing it and hope you get a working one.
