I'm curious, do you experince restarts when using other graphic intensive games/apps? That graphics card is quite a beast and may be drawing more than the PSU can supply when combined with your other hardware. 

Another idea... sometimes windows 10 configures the GPU fan speeds to run slow after an update. Your GPU may be overheating and triggering a shutdown.

No I can run 4k stress tests for extended periods and play games fine

I also calculated the wattage out on coolermasters wattage calculator I seem to have fixed the restart but now my Vive says compositor can't be run error 306 and 400 when I start steam VR it says Vive is off when I try to do room setup.

This may then be related to the USB incompatibility I previously mentioned. The only way to test that one is to actually try the hardware unfortunately :/ It seems like we've tried all of the solutions that we normally turn to when we see these errors. There may also still be some sort of configuration bug that is allowing Windows to use the wrong GPU to drive the Vive
