DIY Computer Random crashes after 2 years

  1. I've had this computer for over 2 years now, I made it myself with these components:
    About a month ago the computer started randomly shutting down with no blue screen or memory dump. From reading online forums I uninstalled Razer Synapse and that seemed to fix the problem for a day or so, but then it continued. From what I can tell there is no correlation to the shut downs, they seem to happen very randomly and when the computer is both under and not under strain.

    The shut downs that have been happening recently have actually been showing up in the event viewer
    Here is the text from the Kernel-Power event that shows up when this happens.

    There is also apparently a driver failure (Kerlen-PnP) that happens which I have posted here:

    Some tests I have already done:
    Checked all of the memory for errors using memtest, and both hard drives with victoria.

    If I need to post any more information please let me know. Thanks to anyone that can help in any way.

    I am now completely locked out of my computer (posting from phone). I can't start it up without turning the power supply off and on again and it crashes when windows loads even in safe mode. I really need help with this as quick as possible.

    Update, I have two hard drives in my computer, the ssd and the storage drive (hdd) and it started up when I unplugged the hdd and did not shut off for some reason. I then installed windows 10 and then plugged the hdd back in...for about a week there were no shut downs but now it randomly started up again. Please help!
