Mining rig keeps rebooting

Hello guys,

i have recently set up a rig for monero mining, and soon after it started mining it started rebooting itself after some time.
i couldn't find the exact reason that why this happens.

here are the specs of the rig:

Motherboard: Asus b250 mining expert (19 PCIE)
Processor: Intel Core i3-7100 Socket LGA 1151 Processor
Graphics card: 4 X Sapphire pulse vega 56 8gb
RAM: 8 GB Corsair (2400Mhz)
OS:Windows 10
Mining software used : XMR_STAK

here's the configuration at which I'm running my GPUs.

the one thing i noticed that when it's mining the GPU no 3's temp goes very high, compared to other GPUs. i don't understand why that happens.

can anyone suggest me what i can do to overcome this issue.

    When I started adding cards to my little mining rig, I ran into a ventilation problem. One card was too close to the next one and it was restricting the air flow and it got pretty hot. Between the software and the hardware, it protected itself by throttling down the hot card - not desirable for performance. I reconfigured my rig so there was plenty of airflow for all the cards and now it's much happier.

    When I was first experimenting with mining, it took a while to find the right combination of drivers and mining software - the OS too - I tried Ubuntu before Windows 10. After many experiments with different OSs, drivers, and software, I have a very stable and steady working system.
