I recently upgraded my pc with a new mobo, CPU, GPU, and RAM

Here is the componentlist;
Core; Intel i7 3770k
mobo; MSI Z77A-G45
RAM; Corsair Vengeance LP 2x4GB
GPU; XFX Radeon 7970 Black Edition
PSU; Techsolo GTP-680 (680W)
OS; Windows 7 Ultimate

After installing the OS I downloaded and installed AllBenchmark and started running it at 720p, after a minute or so the system shut down and rebooted.

So I decided to run the benchmark again this time monitoring the temperatures. The cpu temperatures never exceeded 60 °C and the GPU ditdn't get any hotter than 70°C untill the shutdown.

After this I tried running stresstests, first I tested the CPU, which runned perfectly there was no shutdown. secondly I tested the GPU first with FuMark than with MSI Kombustion,

The Furmark burn-in runned on 720p with 8xMSAA with a constant temperature of 72°C, with no shutdown.

The MSI kombustion Xtreme burn-in test ran smoothly at 720p with a constant temperature of 75°C, with no shutdown

But when I ran the MSI kombustion Xtreme burn-in test at 1680x1050 (maximum screen resolution) the system shut down and rebooted again.

The PC also shutsdown when I try playing games like bioshock infinite, where it crashed during the main menu.

AC3 however ran smoothly for about 5 minutes but after I decided to quit the game, the system crashed during the process of quitting to the main menu.

I am totaly lost here can you guys help me out?

Replacing the PSU seemed to fix the problem. So I guess we learned you shouldn't buy a techsolo PSU.
