  1. I would test your power supply. A temperature shutdown would log and entry in the eventlog.

    41-45C with water cooling is way to high idle.. Please check that you have purchased and applied good quality Thermal paste to your CPU.

    A thin layer is enough don't glob half a thing of thermal paste on there.

    We don't know that it is the PSU for certain but still worth testing. Since Popatim cannot access the Event logs before the system shuts down it's not really easy to say.
