    Well where to begin.... this issue started last week where I was just watching a tv show online and my computer just randomly shut off, I turned it back on and it worked again for about 15 minutes and than shut off again, from there it would only turn on long enough to barely post..... anyways my first guess was maybe my psu was dying or what not, so I took pulled one of my GPUs out and we turned on again. Computer powered on and stayed on for maybe ten minutes... and I'm back to where I started again. I gave my computer a while to sit and I turned it on its side and I started to mess with it again computer stayed on for hours no issues I was testing to see if I was having over heating issues, CPU NB and MB all no where no near over heating, again I tried to stress my GPUs and over all system running Battle field 3 maxed..... no issues, shut my computer down thought I was good to go since I had used it for the day with no issues.... But again the next day same issue, computer powered down after a while of simple tasks.... Anyways I spent the next few days looking up possible solutions.... and I did the following I re-seated every piece of hardware other than my CPU, looked for possible shorts and created less clutter in my system. Driving to work today I figured the only thing I've really changed as of lately in my setup is adding my SSD about a month and a half ago. I never had this problem prior to that so that will be what I try when I get home, however Diablo 3 does come out tonight ;) so I wanna have other possible solutions to stablize my system for some quality play time.... Thanks for your thoughts suggestions :)
