My Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit keeps shutting down.

    Question

  • This is my Configuration...
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
    ECS IC780M-A Motherboard - AMD 770, Socket AM2+, ATX, DDR2, Dual Channel, PCIe, RAID
    AMD Phenom X4 9850 Quad Core Processor HD9850XAJ4BGH - 2.50GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Quad-Core, OEM, Socket AM2+, Processor
    2 Patriot PSD22G80026 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 Memory - 800MHz, 1x2048MB, Non-ECC, Unbuffered
    PowerColor AX5450 2GBK3-SH Radeon HD 5450 Go Green! Series Video Card - 2GB, GDDR3, PCI-Express 2.1, Dual-Link DVI, HDMI, VGA, DirectX 11, Single-Slot, Low Profile

    Memorex 16X DL DVD+R DVD+RW Burner
    Hauppauge - WinTV VHR USB 
    This is the issue I'm having...
    The previous system shutdown at 4:45:25 PM on ‎1/‎14/‎2012 was unexpected.
    It's totally random. Some days the computer shuts down several time an hour. Some times it will run several days without issue.
    I use the computer to encode a shoutcast audio feed of MSNBC which I get from my Hauppauge - WinTV VHR USB . 
    The The previous system shutdown at 4:45:25 PM on ‎1/‎14/‎2012 was unexpected. error is the only thing I am getting in the Windows logs. I don't know where to begin looking to troubleshoot this. I could try a rebuild but think the issue will continue.
    Any Ideas?
                  Thanks

    This is a trigger temp for many motherboards - check the settings on the motherboard.

    A machine with that many fans should be runnning a lot lower than that unless under pressure.

    This sounds like an overheating problem to me.
    You need to check the running temps, and the cooling fans and thermal contacts on the system.
