HI there normally the only time a computer will shut down that fast is if the thermal connection is lost. It's a simple fix, go to your local compute store an buy a tub of attric silver. Take off the cpu and clean all the old paste of it. then apple a fresh layer of artic silver, put the cpu back in place and then restart in safe mode with networking. If everything is ok you should be home free.

I first think, not enough power or your Power supply is showing you signs of it failing.

Try unpluging other un-needed devices (CD rom drive, Extra Harddrives, take out one of your Sli cards, AKA try to boot with basics) as a temp test.

If that doesnt work you may need a new PSU

It could also be a heat issue, make sure all your fans are working and your heasink is properly seated on your processor.

And the most expensive and pain in the A$$ thing of all you could need a new motherboard, but as always K.I.S.S replace the PSU first.

Good luck
