Sounds more like something's overheating.

Is this a new build, or has it been running for some time, and has just started crashing? Check your temps. What are you doing when it shuts off? What video card do you have, and are your drivers up to date. Is there anything in the logs?

It sounds to me like maybe your Windows is corrupt. Did you re-install Windows when you changed the mb. Windows will work like that, but there are so many conflicts from old drivers in the registry that it will never be happy. Read this to try to repair the Window install or backup and install fresh windows 7.

it jsut happened again, i have this EPU-4 engine that allows me to maximize performance or max power save. i ran tf2 on max power save and it was ok untill i switched to max performance 5-7 mins and it crashes

but it just doesnt make sense, i got new psu which is more than enough to handle this phenom x4, maybe i need some thermal paste? :D  i had some when i bought it (3-4 days ago)
