Pc freezes

Hello guys,
First of all, sorry for my english.. it's not my native language. I just have bought a new PC and I am having some troubles. I built it 1 week ago. First 2 days it was all perfect, 0 problems.. but now my mouse freezes randomly and even at windows or playing games.
It does not happen everytime, maybe I can stay on Windows for like 3hours without any problem but then boom, crash.

Also, when playing videogames like csgo, it just freezes and show some blue pixels on the screen: click here ran a benchmark and at 3min the pc crashes and reboots automatically.

My pc specs are:

GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6GB GDDR5
Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus GA-Z270X-Gaming K5
CPU: Intel Core i5-7600K 3.8GHz BOX
Case: Nox Hummer MC USB 3.0 Zero Edition
RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4 3000 PC4-24000 16GB 2x8GB CL15
SSD: Avexir E100 SSD 120GB SATA3
PSW: Nfortec Scutum PSU Fuente de Alimentacion 650W Modular
Cooler: Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H60
Monitor: BenQ Zowie XL2411 24" LED 144Hz

I updated all the drivers and tried different OS (w7 and 10) and it is not working. Tried with an old graphic driver but got the same error. click here don't know if its the PSU that it's not giving enough power to the GPU or the GPU itself.
Any help? Thanks.

That PSW (or PSU)

In reply to: Pc freezes

Is a split rail model rated at +12V1: Min. 0.5A, Max. 22A
+12V2: Min. 0.5A, Max. 22A

Why did the designer pick that over a nice single rail?

There may be other things going on like out of date BIOS, other issues but this stands out with the list you provided. WOULD NOT BUY THIS PSU OR A PC THAT USED IT.

So.. you think its the psw?

I think it was a poor choice and could be it. Here's how it works. You remove blatantly bad choices and then dive in to see what else it could be.

But it's a new PC you bought so there's a warranty. If the maker won't stand by their new PC then you go for refund and shop elsewhere.

You wrote you bought a PC, not that you built it.

I have built it, sorry for not specifing it

In reply to: No.

The problem is that I can play maybe for like 3 hours and then it stops working

That's not in your top post.

In reply to: Psw

I read it was more like 3 minutes on a benchmark app.

Even so, you have a PSU I would never pick. Try a single rail then see where it stands.

As to buy a PC (the words) that's all you wrote so I go with what you write here.
