SAMSUNG HD501LJ 24 °C (75 °F)

Does that seem right?
seem a bit high for an almost idle pc, put it under load with orthos or something and see what they go to, I had an old athlon 3200+ skt 754 and it idled around the mid 30's C. Also check in the bios for what temp the motherboard is set to shut off the system.

Alright, new memory is ordered (same stuff) and I am going to keep a close eye on my temps...

Try running memtest on both sticks individually and see if memtest gives any errors.

This sounds like an overheating problem (I don't mean your CPU or RAM, it's more likely to be a motherboard related problem).

Open up your case and aim some fans directly on your North Bridge and South Bridge. Run your games and see if you still get the problem. I have two mini fans strapped directly on my NB and SB heat sinks to keep them cool.

if it is bad ram then those G.Skills have a lifetime warranty so just send them back and they should send you another set

EDIT... have you got anything overclocked ??? what voltage/speed are you running the ram ??

One thing that has always helped in my experience is to take everything out of your case, use only 1 stick of ram, only the PCI devices that are crucial (video card if you don't have onboard), only the hard drive your OS is on, and don't hook up any optical drives, then put it all together outside of your case, on your desk or something. If you still have problems then you can be sure it wasn't something like your video card wasn't seated properly or something dumb like that.

And if your overclocking return all components to default clock speeds and voltages.

I have this exact same problem, where the computer just randomly shuts off. I've already tried memtesting each stick of ram individually and combined, as well as running the comp with only one stick of ram. Still powers off immediately. I have pretty good temps too (~45C on processor, 40C on mobo). Any help appreciated.

If its 45C on idle, thats definitely not a good temp for a core 2. A core 2 should go above mid 50's on load, if its 45C on idle, its definitely probably hitting the 60's.

Exactly what I was going to suggest. Check your temps too. If you can, see how hot your ram sticks are getting as well.

My bios is set to shut down at 70 (CPU)... looks like I was getting close to that wehn I kept alt-tabbing out of my games. That may be causing it!

I took everything back to stock settings, so no OC.

I also noticed that cool & quiet was enabled... I disabled that as well, going to try testing it again.
