Question Random crashes

So I recently got a lot of crashes, and this is the error / critical message I found in Event Viewer:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Does this indicate that my PSU can't handle the pressure, gets overloaded and is forced to shut down?

My specs:
i7 7700k @ 4.2ghz
GTX 1070 Ti 8GB
MSI Z270 TOMAHAWK
500GB Kingston SSD
2TB HDD
500GB HDD
Some edition of Cooler Master 700 Watt PSU, I don't exactly know the specs/version.

If you guys can confirm this is my PSU, I can try to replace it with an old PSU that has 550W.

Any advice conform this issue is really appreciated.

Managed to fix it by replugging all the PSU cables into my GPU. I think the 6+2 pin wasnt plugged in correctly. I also switched power network.
