Default PC Restarts (black screen, no BSOD) when I finish loading games

Hi there, this is my first post (ever), so I have probably made mistakes, please help me rectify them.
Moving on, Since about two months ago, my PC has been restarting whenever I load a game, to be precise, when I'm playing Dota 2 or CSGO (That's all I play), the restart doesn't occur in main menu, but does within seconds to minutes after I finish loading and am playing a match. I purchased a new of set of 2x8GB RAM from a local shop but they've passed Windows Memory Diagnostics, tested GPU with Furmark and it didn't restart.
I live in India where the average temperature in the day is 40C (summer), considering that, my CPU, GPU, HDD temperatures are 60C, 55C, 43C respectively, which I think is normal. The restarts have increased as the average temperature increased (winter to summer), now in day, I can't game because it is sure to restart but I can play after 23:30ish because temp. in the night falls to 28-30C. I was told by the technician it's an overheating PSU and I should replace my case with Carbide Spec 01, did that, didn't work. I've checked all such errors since last 6 months, found out it happened before 2 months but in a very low amount, Event Viewer mentions them all as Critical Error, Event ID 41, Task category 63. The last report gave this.

Appreciate your help, thank you!
Update: It restarted a minute back, I touched the exhaust of PSU at the back, it's ambient temperature, not hot at all.
Also, I read about this issue being caused by Win 10 Anniversary Update, I have the latest update, could this be a software issue? if so, why does it occur extremely rarely at night?
