Its probably a over heating problem. next time check your CPU temp if its like 75 or higher you have a over heating problem.

Best solution

Check the Windows Event Log and see if there's an application or system error.

Download a program like "Bluescreen view" and see if there's an error.

I would guess it's your PSU though.

If it's heat, you will probably just get errors and crashing or slow downs. The CPU can run past 90c without damaging the chip in theory.

Sounds accurate. With no BSOD, Windows is not reporting any hardware failure. That means the OS shut down before it could complete a report; ie the power went off.
