So few weeks ago i made a post here saying that my PC had freezing and bluescreens issue and everyone told me that it could be the issue with the PSU so i replaced it and now I'm still getting BSODS and freezing .Today when it froze i got some kind of red artifact at the corner of my monitor, My GPU is only like 8 months old could this be the motherboard?

My specs
Core 2 quad q6600
Colourful GT1030
4GB RAM
Zeb g31 motherboard
 
Unfortunately this is one junk PSU but will work with your hardware.

at 3:41. 12V at 14A so 168 watts on the 12V.

My PC is overheating after replacing the PSU. CPU just reached about 70°, HDD reached 50° and GPU is at 45° then i switched to me old PSU and now temps are low. So what causes this should i return my new one and go for another one?

Yeah and i did return it but why does it overheat?
It overheated because it only has the power to operate a 1990's system. What is happening is that the power supply is likely working at 100 percent power all the time, like driving a car 200 miles per hour all the time, it will overheat. Other than that I am not sure how 4gigs of ram still works, it does because the OS writes temp files to the drive which takes forever.
