comment PC rebooting randomly when NOTplaying games
From comments in main question, summing up: I set my vDroop offset to +25%, turned off Intel Turbo Boost, set the CPU multiplier to the same frequency as the turbo boost frequency on my CPU (39 => 3.9GHz), and set the voltage of my CPU to the maximum voltage registered while stress testing with Prime95 (1.035v), before changing any of the settings. This has worked so far!

comment PC rebooting randomly when NOTplaying games
@Linef4ult So far, so good. PC's been running for 49 hours straight. Gonna give it a few more days just to be 100% certain. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction! If you post an answer with your suggestion about Vdroop, I'll mark it as the answer. Though I haven't tried ONLY adjusting Vdroop offset, as I've also manually set the clock speed.

@Linef4ult Thank you, I've set my Vdroop offset to +25%, I disabled Turbo boost, set my CPU to a default frequency of my turbo boost (3.9GHz), and set my CPU voltage to the peak voltage I could find when Prime95'ing (1.035v). Though it looks like it simply won't apply my voltage change, the rest seems to be applied (Except for Task Manager indicating 4.41GHz, but other tools 3.9GHz :). Gonna test this out for a few days.

@Linef4ult Yeah, I know a forum usually works slightly better, but I know there's some very knowledgable and professional people here, not the people who think they can reply because they've once plugged a GPU into a motherboard ;) . My Motherboard also allows adjusting Vdroop levels, shouldn't I try that before CPU voltage? And any clue what I should set it to? High or low? i.imgur.com/WkiHCme.png

Seriously, that is so confusing. I figured it out seconds before I read your answer.

comment Prefer WiFi over Ethernet
Entropy, that solves my issue with it preffering Ethernet over Wi-Fi! Thanks. Now the only problem is that it doesn't automatically connect to my hotspot... Any ideas?

comment Prefer WiFi over Ethernet
Terdon, I am using a powerline adapter for the WoL, I live in a very old house, and they are extremely cheap, get about 6 Mb/s down and up. My Wireless adapter is very strong, and I get 60 down, 6 up on it, which is exactly what I pay for ;) I added this reason to the question now. I knew someone was going to ask.
