From your PSU, are you using 2/3 separate 8pin PCIe power cables?

Windows was never 100% stable, unexpected reboots happen. Ignore it the first time. If you got it 2 or 3 times in a row, now you can search why.

In Win 95/98 days, just clicking on the floppy disk in file explorer when it was empty would bluescreen windows.

Yes I am using 2 different PCI-e plugs from the PSU to the GPU. When I have time today. I'll see it happens again. Like most of you said. Could have been some kind of bug. Thanks everyone. I'll keep you informed.

I've had 2 random reboots playing warzone since I built my PC. Spaced out over months. I wouldn't worry too much unless it happens a lot.

What size PSU do you have? Those cards pull a lot more power than you think.
that is the first thing that popped in my head PSU make and size. I lost my whole system years back my vid card board and cpu because I used a cheap PSU and it blew took out everything except for my ram sticks but that was back in the Pentium days

I have a Corsair RM750x gold plus. And that is the recommended psu for the card. I played an hour of COD BOCW and seems fine. Played some pubg. And no problems as well. Hopefully just a glitch.
