could be a heat problem, and the heat protection shuts it down.

i dont think its heat becuase right when i started it up i check tempture of every thing mobo/cpu/and psu and they all were normal 25c/38c/71c so i dont think its that.

71c for psu seems a bit high, but i dont know what is average for that as i dont have psu temps on my pc (unless pwm is power, which for me it is 36*)
