She may not be grounded properly.

That or she should lower her overclock a little.

If none of that is the case the psu may be shot.
I have never heard of that brand but it sounds like some third-party chinese brand.

It's a boyfriend at the electrical breaker box so she'll stop playing on the computer and go to the movies with him.

Seriously though, if its overclocked, take it all back to stock. It doesn't sound like it's overheating but maybe a voltage setting is too high or something. If it's still doing the same thing, then take out the PSU and either try it in another PC or replace it with a known good PSU and test the system then.

she havent come back online yet, so I cant ask her if she has it overclocked, but it sounded like, the way she wrote about her knowledge in computers, that she does not have a overclock on the CPU

Does shut down occur while idleing or on load?
My brother is getting random shot downs on Corsair 450Vx. Strange, it only occurs randomly on idle. But I know what is reason for that. He is hitting his PC. Ask if she ever kicked her Pc cos of rage. Maybe some wire unplugged and is not correct.

Also, have her make sure that the 24-pin and the 8-pin PSU power connectors are properly connected to the mobo.

(I use AMD systems so not sure if Intel systems also use the 8-pin connector or not.)

I've found out that the PSU is a 4-Rail PSU. so if she has the CPU, Mobo and GPU connected to only one Rail, that would be bad. Will ask her if she comes back

after she had opened it to check the name of the PSU, I asked if the insides looked "dusty", then she said no and that she cleaned it regularely.

I asked inside of the PC, but if she ment inside I dont know, will ask again
