The PSU is a tier 4 unit on this list:
Really, not very good.

The GTX1060 needs only a decent 450w psu.
You should be OK.

I suspect your problem is a motherboard that is not suitable for a FX-8350 processor.
With a fast graphics card, your processor is running hard to get you a high FPS.
That heats up the VRM modules on the motherboard, causing instability.

The FX platform is dead and I can not recommend spending anything more on it.
I suppose you could work with undervolting the processor until you get stability.
Possibly cutting back on the number of threads from 8 to 6 might do it.

And i have seen other people with a fx 8350 gtx 1060 6gb and the same motherboard
 
Then why are you having a problem?
You have the symptom of a heat issue. It is not support of FX by itself, it is the support for FX-8xxx that will overheat motherboard components.

It is most unlikely that the psu would give those symptoms.
And,, the "paper clip" test is worthless.
If it fails, you have a dead psu.
If it runs, there is no guarantee of proper operation.
If you tested by running the psu in a different system, that is ok.

Yeah but every one i saying the reasson why my pc restarts itself after 5min playing a game is because i bought a really cheap psu and that its say its 500wwat but he cant give that constantly
 
If you really think it is the psu, then the only way you are going to find out is to replace the psu with a known good psu.
GTX1060 is not a high power graphics card.
It is a 120w card and nvidia says to use a 400w psu:

You say you just bought the motherboard.
Perhaps it is the motherboard that is defective.

More likely, you are not cooling it properly.
Here is the cpu support list for your motherboard:

Note that the FX-8xxx processors are annotated with a red asterisk indicating that added cooling of the motherboard is required.

And... I think you mistakenly made your response the best answer.
No big deal, but others will not bother to comment on a post that has already been answered.
