Microsoft article that explains a bit about your event logs.
Ah, I'll be sure to check that after my next failure.

I think he meant MAX memory to rule out any possibility of a bad overclock.
Hmm, tried it for a bit, but it makes my CPU run hotter than I'm comfortable with (because I can't seem the find its actual temperature limit I'm afraid to let it go over 70 C).

K, now I got an actual spontaneous shut-down, which I haven't gotten for awhile.
Normally I'd suspect the power from the outlet (college dormitory) but looking in the Event Viewer, it was followed by three errors, all the same, all happened within two seconds:
Error| Date and Time| Source: Disk| Event ID: 11| Task Category: None

The message in the general tab is the same in each: "The driver detected a controller error on \\Device\\Harddisk1\\DR3."

Browsing back through the Event Viewer, yesterday, at what I think would be the correct time for one of the partial shut-downs I've been having is something similar--three errors, all within two seconds, all from the Disk, all Event ID: 11
The message is slightly different though, instead it's: "The driver detected a controller error on \\Device\\Harddisk2\\DR2."

Looks like bad news.

Theories? Questions?

I've seen these errors in the past. Some of the things that can cause them are a bad hard drive, a bad controller on your motherboard, or even bad RAM.

** The first thing you want to do is backup your hard drive. **

Check your SATA cables. You can try reseating, replacing, or plugging them into different ports.

To test your hard drive, you can use Check Disk in Windows... Start -> Computer -> select your hard drive -> right click & select Properties -> Tools -> Error checking (Check now...) -> check both boxes & Start.

You can also use hard drive diagnostic utilities such as Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test, SeaTools, or HD Tune.

To test your RAM, use Memtest86+.

Also, it couldn't hurt to check the Action Center in the Control Panel to see if any errors are recorded there with a possible troubleshooter.

Ran the Check Disk feature, didn't see any negative messages.

On to the memory test, although I need to figure out my CPU's safe temperature range.

Try swapping out the cable. It's hard to imagine one going bad because they hardly ever move, but it does happen and it can be difficult to inspect visually when one does go out.

All I can tell you is that AMD rates the max temp at 62 C. Source

Based on your earlier stress test temp, you might consider better cooling if you plan to overclock or use software that will utilize your CPU at 100%.

Memtest86+ passed with no errors.

Hmmmm, the triple-disk-error being indicative of the problem is seeming less likely.

I've been watching the event viewer and I've had the triple-error without a system shutdown, and a failure without the error appearing.

In the Action Center, I'm seeing that there's an issue with my graphics driver that it has a solution for (though the error its referring to was awhile ago), but whenever I try to get said solution it says it's unavailable, even when the internet is working.

Any luck with your problem?
