it seems a psu issue or cpu or other components overheating issue, or a bad overclock (if using)

use hwinfo32 or 64 (for 64bit os) to check temp
use prime95 to check stability of cpu and ram
and use occt to check stability of all components and voltages during stress

Prob a PSU issue although I have had same problem before where some of capacitors on my mobo popped and it would do this randomly..
