    how do i set my profile like yours? where is says all the component you have on your system on the top right of your comments seems like an easy way to post what i have. anyways here is my build

    cpu 17 3039k 3.20ghz
    gpu asus gtx 780 ti 3x
    mob asus rampage iv black edition
    2 Tb hitachi hdd
    64gb samsum ssd
    cosair vengence Lp 16gb
    PSU antec high current pro 1300w

    what is an "SPU"?
  3. it shuts down on my a few times but now i had it on for an hour and nothing is happening? i did install the latest driver for my 3.0 USb. but that can't be it. can it?
  4. Do you have any overclock on your CPU? If yes, set it back to default.
    Do you have the latest bios installed on your mobo? - If not, upgrade it.
    Is it a problem if you re-install windows? If not, do it and check if the issue persists.

    Also, do you get any BSOD or message before it shuts down? Or it just crashes and restarts itself?

    it just shut down and if i was watching a video the sound will just stutter for 1 sec or less and then shut off. bios on mobo? don't they normally have a very up to date bios on mob? i haven't try to disconnect my other gpu that's running sli, i might try that and see also i'm going to be re installing the windows on my ssd and see if that makes a different. but for more than 24hrs it hasn't happen again since i updated the driver on my usb controller.
    how do i find out what version of bios my mobo has?

    p.s nothing is overclock

    Check your Bios version: http://www.wikihow.com/Check-BIOS-Version
    Then go to the page of your mobo manufacturer, go for Support on your exact one, and check what is the latest version.
