Windows 7: Random crashing on Windows 7

Random crashing on Windows 7

Alright over the past few weeks I have endured this problem of my computer will just shutdown in the middle of what I'm doing, the power light blinks about once per second, and then stays off. In order for me to turn it off I have to unplug the PSU.

I have previously thought of overheating. So I took the side of the case off and placed a fan directly on the motherboard. The problem ceased. In the mean-time I ordered a bigger better heatsink (CNPS11X). After it was installed I removed the fan and it crashed again later.

My specs are:
MSI 870A-G54 Motherboard
AMD Athlon II Quad-Core 630 Processor (2.8 GHz)
4 GB RAM (2 2GB sticks)
Seagate 500 GB HDD
Rosewill 700W PSU
Radeon HD 4670 Graphics card

The event viewer event is critical Kernal-Power.
Event ID: 41

Can anyone help me with this problem? I've been scratching my head for days on it.
