What psu do you have?

Freezing is usually caused by overheating, a cheap PSU, or RAM issues. I'm also curious to see what PSU you have. What is the model number for your 8GB of RAM? Have you monitored the CPU/GPU temps?

is it restarding bcs of the psu?

It's possible. You still haven't given us model numbers for your PSU or RAM, so we don't really have anything to go off of. The wattage means nothing. We need to know what brand and model number it is. I'm guessing it's a no-name PSU if you don't know what it is. The same goes for the RAM. Just saying 8GB of RAM doesn't tell us anything meaningful about the RAM.

That PSU is junk. It only puts out 16A on the 12v rail. It should be replaced with a quality unit ASAP. If you're in the US then you can get this nice PSU for $25.99 with a $10 promo code and $25 mail-in rebate.

A quality PSU is the most important component in your PC since it takes the AC power from the wall and turns it into the clean power your delicate components need to function correctly. A cheap PSU can't provide clean power and can send voltage spikes to your components which causes all sorts of stability issues.
