Windows 7: Random Shutdowns for no reason?

Random Shutdowns for no reason?

Hey guys,
I thought I had this problem fixed but I guess not. My computer will randomly turn off (as if I unplugged it) at different times. I have had it done twice in the last hour I tried removing RAM in case that was the problem NO CHANGE. I bought a brand new power supply yesterday because I thought my old one was bad. It is a thermaltake 600 watts, which is more than enough to run this PC. A few days before that I got a new motherboard from the manufacturer. I am literally stumped, the only other thing I can think of is if my power switch is getting stuck. I have no idea how to replace or rewire a switch though besides getting a new case. What are you guys thinking?

Thanks

Your event viewer log jumps from 2010 till today with no entries. I can only say that today you had several "unexpected" shutdowns.

Any idea why the log jumps from the ancient past till today?

Whenever I first got my motherboard back the date and time was set to august I just now reset it today. So we learned nothing from that?

Hum, just a reset shouldn't do that but would explain it.

All we learned is that you have had frequent unexpected (event ID 41 cause 63) shutdowns.

Is your cpu OC as well as your GPU?

My fault sorry! Was working far too many threads then.

Let me take another look

Nope, nothing in the log from today except for the unexpected shutdown
