Windows 7: Frequent and random freeze and shutdown

Frequent and random freeze and shutdown

Hi I've been experiencing very frequent freezes then shutdown without BSOD. The mouse and running applications just freeze, and if I have audio on, the sound will crash into noise, then a few seconds later, the PC shuts down.
I thought it maybe overheating but I put a large fan directly on the mobo, and the temp is around 50-60


the components are rather recent, well at least the computer shop replaced most components recently, but I don't know how long they've been sitting on the shelf
only the hard drive is older.

it can happen 4-5 times a day, or I can go a day or 2 without it happening. I usually leave the PC on all the time.

You might want to check if something any of the hardware components are overheating too much. For monitoring the heat/celsius of the system, use Speccy or HWinfo:__________________

Some hardware tests to run. Especially the Hard drive test. We do need the system specs too.

To help us help you would you please add your systems specs? Here's how: System Info - See Your System Specs
Under System Manufacturer/Model Number add whether it is a desktop or laptop and whether self built.

Log in to Seven Forums and you will be able to transfer the info directly to the specs page in your profile from within the System Info app.
After doing this your specs will be available in each of your posts. Click on My system Specs in the lower left of this post to see how it should look.
Full instructions are in the tutorial.

Then we are more able to help.

thanks, I added my system specs.
I instaleld the system health utility from Asus, maker of the motherboard, and it's reporting different temperatures , how is that possible?

EDIT: installed HW monitor and it's reporting 97 for the processor so I guess that's correct.
I don't know what the lower temperature being reported corresponds to. It's listed undewr CPUTIN in HW monitor
