Yesterday morning my PC running a P5Q MB decided to call it a day in the middle of a game of DIRT 3. Thought it was a hard drive and after 4 formats and fresh installation on brand new discs 2XSDD and 2X SATA's, same thing was happening after about 10 minutes of running. Extremely frustrated at this point and gave up. Came home from work today and stripped the PC bare, rebuilt it and same thing. Had a look at the PSU, it is about 4 months old and it was a bit dusty. Brought it to the garage and blew it out and hey presto, back up and running again. Must have been a voltage prob with the build up of dust in the PSU. Might be worth a try for you.
