Hi, 2-3 months ago I built a pc but I have problems. My system is freezing randomly and I do not use the cursor or anything else(also sounds are gone)I have to restart by using the button on the case. After restarting, I see no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key message and then I check bios boot settings, my SSD is chosen without error. After a few restarts, I can see the desktop. (I did SSD, GPU,memory test without error.)

Double check all connections in the case. In the Windows 10 search bar, search for Event Viewer -> Windows Logs -> System and see what it says after your PC freezes.

Try a different power supply. the power supply is made by CWT who also builds Corsair's lower end power supplies. Ones that dont have very good reliability.

Kernel power 41(63) so I should change my PSU.

i don't think you really know what you are talkinga bout when it comes to power supplies...:(

the TX850M is a very good power supply (also built by CWT further proving the above statement false) but power supplies really don't create random system freeze. That's often a software, driver, ram or possibly drive issue. Randomly spending money on new hardware hoping to solve an issue is not a good use of money.

CWT build Corsairs CS, VS line of power supplies which are known to not be the greatest. CWT also build a lot of Corsair's mid to higher end stuff which are very good. Im not criticizing CWT's build quality - Im criticizing them in a sense that maybe Corsair pushed them too hard to cut corners with their lower end units. CWT as a whole though are pretty solid

The cooler master 650 watt 80+ falls within the same tier/price range of the CS and VS power supplies, are built by the same manufacturer so i automatically assume they are the same units but rebadged by different companies with maybe some slight cosmetic differences between them

That's not how manufacturing works. Corsair gives CWT a manufacturing price point and CWT has a platform to match it (the most likely outcome) or CWT creates one (typically for a higher priced unit). The manufacturing part list is also approved by Corsair. If I gave you $10 to bring me lunch and you came back with a McDonald's meal I can't really chastise you for not coming back with a filet mignon steak sandwich, truffle fries, and a beer from Morton's steakhouse.

FYI, CWT is one of the largest suppliers of PSU to third party brands like Corsair, thermaltake, gigabyte, CM. Not as big as the the guys who supply the pre-built market (delta, acbel, lite-on, etc.,) but they obviously have a full range of price point units.

OK so I should blame CWT then. Thanks for the correction

Not sure what there is to blame or why it would be CWT. For the price point and quantity of order, you would have a hard time finding a better unit. You can certainly blame the industry for making PSU marketing and regulations a joke. You can certainly blame Corsair for entering a lower tier market segment (however profitable it may be). Most of all you can blame the people buying/building with these units. That said I've yet to see anything from the OP showing the PSU is the issue.

"Event ID: 41

Nowhere does it state that your PSU is at fault here. You can have unstable memory timings which will cause hard reboot on Ryzen and Windows will log a Kernel Power 41 on this event.

What did you use to test memory?

But hang on... You've told me that i dont know what im talking about. I blamed Corsair then you corrected me and i blamed CWT and now I have to go back to blaming Corsair for pushing CWT to make shoddy units?

Who said the units are shoddy? Cheaply built, sure.

Windows memory diagnostic.

I use a daisy chain PCIe cable. Can it be a problem?
