Random Computer Restarts After Build

First build, probably missing something obvious. Fully built and installed (using said computer currently). In the middle of Youtube, Minecraft, checking email (random) will freeze up and then restart.

I have a few hunches on what it might be. I've tried updating the GPU and cooling. Using a Corsair Liquid CPU Cooler, had to overwrite the CPU fan in the bios to be able to start. Still shows up as a cooling fan and keeps the temp down but I've been setting manually and have reached a high of maybe 30C. Is there some software to mitigate this better that I haven't found yet? Is it possible that my CPU is just freaking out thinking that it can't control its own temperature and restarting? Or am I missing something much more basic since this is my first build?

Restarts are usually the PSU.
