My PC crashes (powers down), i can turn it back on but only stays on for a few minutes/seconds depending on how long i left it off for. If I leave it off overnight, then it restarts and works just fine, for 3 to 8 hours.

i have i7 3.4, GTX 680,32 GB GSkill ram, 750 80+silver PSU

have you checked the tempature on the cpu? what is it after a few hours?

What are your temps? Also I've see PSU's do this if their fan dies, the psu itself can overheat.

First guess would be your PSU is failing.
