Hello guys, My system worked without any problem from past 1 year but today I have observed unusual behaviour it freezes and restarts after few minutes. I tried restarting the system multiple times but problem persists. I thought it is an OS problem, so I booted system with another OS installed on different hard drive i.e. windows 10 (I have installed Ubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10 in 2 separate SSDs) but in windows also same problem persists. Hence I believe it is some hardware issue.

I am not sure how can I troubleshoot. Can anyone tell me how can I find the culprit component.

My system configuration

The system restarting is a classic PSU failure symptom. The PSU you have is a very low-quality one and I'm not surprised if it failed.
Ok, Can you please suggest a good power supply (not much costly). One more thing I might be upgrading my GPU to GTX 1070.

Does changing PSU will solve my problem ?

I troubleshooted to see if it’s RAM issue, I tried swapping out RAM sticks and ran Heaven Benchmark (extreme setting at 1080p) but it crashes in between. So I believe RAM are not the issue or both RAM stick are damaged.

While running Heaven Benchmark I observed below stats for CPU and GPU which seems ok to me
GPU: 66 °c (max) Usage 99% (avg)
CPU: 50 °c (max)

I think replacing the PSU will solve your problem. I'm not an expert but I did work in tech support a few years and pc repair for a few years.

If you want to be sure before you spend money you would have to borrow a known good working PSU from somewhere to test.

I think I should take it to local repair shop to see If they find the problem, PSU I will upgrade anyway as you suggested.
