My PC restarts unexpectedly. How do I troubleshoot the problem? What are the steps I should take?

Intel i5-11400F
Asus ROG Strix Z490-A Gaming
Corsair CV 650W
Zotac AMP White RTX 3060
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB
Corsair iCUE 220T RGB Airflow
Corsair DDR4 3600 2x8GB (CMW16X4M2C3600C18)(Micron)
**RAM running at 3466 XMP turned on. For some reason 3466 applies even though bios show target ram frequency as 3600

Is my power supply not enough?

Update - March 4th
I swapped the VGA and used a Gigabyte Windforce GTX 970 OC and restarting issue is gone. Also I had this problem the first day I installed the 3060 but it went away. Yesterday I updated the bios and that's when the issue reappeared. Can't be bios problem because the system now works with 970 right?

Sadly no. Sometime it even restarts while booting. One more thing, I use the stock cooler and I have not bought a fan for back panel. So, no exhaust fans for now.
