My PC started freezing and restarting since yesterday. It randomly freezes and restarts a few minutes after starting the PC and it does the same thing for the 2nd time and never does it again until I turn off the PC and turn it on. I don't get a bluescreen when it freezes. I checked out the CPU,GPU,HDD and SSD temperatures and they look normal to me. The PC is about a year old.
PC Spec:
CPU : Intel Core i7 6700K 4.0GHz (stock)
MB: Asus Prime Z270-AR
PSU: EVGA Supernova P2 650
GPU: Zotac Nvidia GTX 660 2 GB (factory overclocked)
RAM: 1x Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR4 LPX 2400MHz C16
SSD: Samsung 970 Pro 512 GB (Boot Drive)
HDD: WD Blue 2 TB
Could this happen due to an overheating chipset?

Did you resolve this issue? I have the same thing happening to me and I can't figure out what to do.
