My PC Keeps restarting randomly.

CPU: AMD FX 4300 OC 4.1Ghz GPU: NVIDEA GTX 960 4GB PSU: 630W RAM: 8GB

My PC keeps restarting after being on any game for about 15 minutes. I don't know what the issue could be. The CPU reaches a temperature of 55 degrees Celsius and the GPU reaches a temperature of 60 degrees. So I don't think its an overheating issue. My old graphics card which was a Radeon HD 7790 worked fine. Does anyone know of a fix for this?

PSU problems possibly.

Do you think its to do with the actual power supply having a malfunction? Or is it because there is not enough power for the components?

A 650 watt PSU is likely to be powerful enough for most setups. So, the possibility of it not delivering sufficient power must be high on your list, but check its airflow asap.
