PC keeps reseting after new SSD Hard drive

Hi, last friday I bought a new SSD hard drive (Mushkin Triactor 480GB) and yesterday I put it on my computer, after installing windows (10), updates, graphic card drivers and most necessary programs (same way that I did with my old HDD hard drive) it kept resetting moments after I would boot the computer. It does boot really fast and reach windows but doesn't last long.. it resets and then does disk checking and so on..

This happened to me once before with my old hard drive when my ram was crappy but when I replaced it with new one it stopped, it's NOT the ram and it's not the cables connectivity this time. Right now I reconnected my old HDD drive and there have been no resets. Could the new SSD be faulty?

My specs are:
AMD FX 8320 8core @3,5ghz
Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 Ti GDDR5 128bit
Kingston 8GB (single) RAM DDR3 1600mhz
Windows 10 pro 64bit
My PSU is 750 watt
