Hi Big G, Welcome to SevenForums

I am thinking you are having a BSOD, the link will lead you on the section on BSOD help and support. http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/ but first read this instruction on how to post your BSOD info.

As what you are experiencing, that could contribute to a BSOD, it is not necessary to see that blue screen for you to say it is BSOD.

Have you tried checking your PSU and GPU? they could contribute to it too.
Try running tests.

Is your memory running at stocks speeds, any oC of the memory without correct timings can cause blue screens and or shutting down.

If you ruled out the cpu, the video card and drivers can cause that issue too.

I see you have a Asus rog Maximus vi hero motherboard.
Do you have anything over clocked?
