I built my PC one year ago and I didn't have any problems until last week. It crashes anytime I play games like Far Cry 5 or even when I slightly touch it!
I swapped the PSU with a new one but I didn't solve anything... I installed "Driver Booster" in order to update all my drivers but that didn't help either.
The computer doesn't freeze when I play older games though... (+10 years old)
Could it be that my GPU, CPU or my motherboard is defective? I hope not... How could I be sure?

My specs:

Asus Z170 Pro Gaming

i5-6600K (not overclocked)

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070

16GB ram

Windows 10

Have you tried checking for loose connections? Have you tried reseating your graphics card?
