It started happening without any warning or BSOD. Everything freezes for 4-5 seconds and then it restarts.

The computer is a year old. Temps are normal across the board and chkdsk is clean.

My canned random reboot Rant
Random reboots are usually caused by the PSU, the RAM or software AND in that order of likely-hood.
PSU - If you can borrow/swap a PSU for testing. sibling/friend you can swap out the PSU and each system will be testing the other.
RAM - run the system with one stick of RAM see if stability returns if not Test all the RAM with memtest 86 for five passes or overnight. if you get no 0 errors after more than five passes the ram is good. with the random reboots I would suggest running this test after the PSU swap or after the PSU has been cleared.
Software - Drivers or other issues can cause reboots. Boot to a linux distro on a USB drive. mint linux will boot to memtest86. you can run the OS from the USB and await reboot.
end canned rant

your problem is mainly caused due to PSU which is providing insufficient power supply. I suggest you to have a new PSU if you can. meanwhilw you can havw some tests like memtest86.
