  • Dota 2 restarting my PC



    PC restarting when a game is found, after I click accept and it's loading (mostly when I alt-tabbed to windows). Or restarts while in-game.
    Note: This doesn't happen every game.

    More info:

    Pc seems to be heating up while playing, with a processor around 68°C and my fan speed increasing. Then shortly after my PC may restart.
    Same problem when clicking accept and the game is loading, only with not so much fan noise.
    When trying to re-enter the game, it says I can't and it gives me a game search penalty.

    What's the problem here?

    Some system specs:

    - Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
    - Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.00GHz
    - 16,0GB RAM DDR3
    - Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. Z97X-SLI-CF
    - Graphics: 4095MBNVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 (ZOTAC International)
    More provided if needed.

    DxDiag and Dota 2 dumps (11 files created from 21/01/06 to today) included.

    Help is greatly appreciated!
