Okay.. I'd stress your gpu with ATITOOL, see if it craps out.

Then stress the cpu.

Watch youre temps, and we can slowly figure it out.

Edit.. what is yyour psu?

If you don't know, the the numbers off the side of it... gotta open the panel to read it. Need, Watts and Amps on the 12V,

No, cant be 8As!... that could be your issue.... Is the 8A under a 12V? or are there 2 +ve 12Vs? and 1 -ve 12V?

How doers ATITool crash?

Run it till the temp levels... should be 5-10 mins.

Get yourself a digital multimeter and check the voltages on all the rails on idle and load.

all voltages have to be within 5%, as is the ATX standard.

8.0A on the +12V rail is really low. I'd get a new PSU even if it's not what's causing it to shut down.

Porgram read outs are unreliable, Use the DMM..

You should have a DMM anyways, who knows when youll need it again, for your computer or someone you know.
