Question PC reboot and immediate restart when launching certain games

So, for the past 2 months~~~ my PC has been crashing consistently when booting up Dead By Daylight. I get past the main cutscene, then it reboots, and restarts immediately. I get no beeping sounds, no error message, and I get a kernel power error in my event log viewer. I haven't done any PC modifications in over a year as well.

Specs are:
Intel Core i7-8700k
32gb of RAM
RTX 2060 Super
Thermaltake TR2 600W PSU

I also just recently updated BIOS seeing as my last version was almost 3 years ago, but that only helped my crashes on Hunt Showdown. Other games still will occasionally crash on loadup, but Dead By Daylight is the ONLY ONE that it happens EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Checked temps, GPU and CPU temps are fine before crash. As well as having done a memory check test, it seems fine, and GPU stress test is good.

Please help me, I just want to play my game.

Thermaltake TR2 600W PSU
Please throw that PSU out of the window, it's not to be considered a PSU. You should also be looking at a reliably built 650W unit to power your entire system. Your specs are also incomplete, you forgot to the mention the make and model of the ram kit used, the cooling for the processor and the make and model of your motherboard. Please add the BIOS version for said motherboard as well.

Just for the sake of relevance, how old is the Thermaltake PSU?

Hey there, thank you for the reply. My fault for leaving out a few things.

MOBO is an ASUS Prime Z390-A, BIOS Version 1903 (just updated to it)
RAM is 32gb of CORSAIR Vengeance RGB Pro (i believe) 4x8GB
CPU cooler is a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Also, I'm not entirely sure how old it is, but I built this PC around 4-5 years ago I believe, and it's also the only component I haven't upgraded yet so I'm leaning towards maybe I need to upgrade it. I've just been trying to rule out ANYTHING I can before having to spend money on a new PSU seeing as am in school and tight on cash.

Also, what exactly is wrong with the PSU?
