PC keep restarting. Do I need power stabilizer?

Power supply / Cabinets / Mods -
Which will be good stabilizer for my PC?


My PC keep restarting in every 5 - 10 minutes. I tried to troubleshoot everything including disabling "auto restrat" option and formatting my PC and doing clean install. Still the problem is there.

Then I suspected power fluctuation issue. So I tried to connect my whole PC system in my neighbor's house and same problem happened.

Later I connected my PC at my uncle's house in another area and it doesn't restart. So temporarily I came to conclusion that it is may be because of power fluctuations in my area.

The issue just started since last 2 months. Complained to electricity officials but you know how these organizations work in India.

Below are my PC configuration.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

Intel i7 6700k

Asus Z170 Maximus VIII Ranger

32 GB G-skill Ripjaws (8GBx4)

240 GB Kingston SSD

4 TB WD HDD (1TB x 4)

4 GB Asus GTX 960 DDR 5 Graphics Card

Heatsink liquid Seidon 120m

LG DVD Writer

600W Cooler Master SMPS

22" Dell S2216H LED (2 Monitors)

Creative SBS A-355 2.1 Speaker

Wacom Pen Tablet


Keyboard Mouse

My UPS is in great condition and in power failures, give 20 minutes of backup. But it can't prevent restart. Also I keep all my drivers up to date.

The total power consumption of my PC comes around 1200W I guess. Do you think I need a voltage stabilizer? If Yes, then which is best? My budget is around 8K INR.
