My first thought is that the power supply is suspect. If you can get it tested, that would be good.

Second thought is RAM.

Keep us posted!

Also check to make sure the heatsync on the cpu is in good contact with the Cpu. Because it will shut down from heat also.

it was the heatsink...... , the clips weren't properly pushed into the board.... i reapplied as5 and it came on with no shut downs to date. Speedfan says im at mobo 33c and proc 35-40c, although coretemps program states 50c/50c are those acceptable temps for mobo and cpu? also one thing is makeing me question the powersupply.....everytime i start the pc, the psu comes on then real fast like goes idle or maybe off then really fast comes on and stable......like its priming itself up or something i made sure the connector was in good.

anyways thanks for the help guys

the "reving" up you are hearing from the PSU is cause the motherboard is controlling the fan based on the system temp. it revs up then slow down cause the temp is low enough that it doesnt need to be on full.
