    Random reboots with any video card except integrated video

    Weird issue current setup:
    MB: MSI H67MA-E35 (B3)
    CPU: i7-3770k
    Video: Integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000
    8GB Ram
    Crucial 256GB SSD
    Win 8.1
    Athena 400W PSU Model: AP-MPS3ATX40
    Dual Asus VE247 monitors

    About a month ago, I decided to upgrade my CPU from an i3-2100 to the current i7-3770k. At the time I had an old Radeon 5550 video card, running 2 monitors, both hooked up to DVI. After upgrading to the new CPU, I would get random reboots watching any videos after about 2-3 minutes. No BSOD, no entries in the event viewer (except for event id 41). So I decided to hookup the integrated video on the motherboard and everything played fine and works like a champ. Except one monitor was on HDMI and one on DVI. I decided since the video card was old, I would get a new one, so I bought a Sapphire R7-250X, put it in, plugged both monitors into DVI and started getting the same random reboots. I returned it, and thought that maybe there was some conflict with AMD, so I bought a Gigabyte GTX 750. Put that in with both monitors on DVI and the reboots happen again.

    I don't play any games. I do watch live tv from my HDHomerun and use GoPro Studio quite a bit and that is when the reboots happen. Don't happen when web surfing or doing any non video app.

    I have run WIndows Memory checker which showed no memory errors.

    Any ideas?

    In case someone else comes across this thread, I replaced my 400w power supply with a 600w Corsair power supply and it appears to have fixed the problem.
