You can have five fans and still not have good ventilation, they need to be working together to pull from one end of the case and exhaust at the other.

How old is this computer?
When was the last time that you cleaned it out?
Did this problem start after any changes that you made to the computer?

One other thing to look into, go to your control panel, go to Administrative Tools, go to Event Viewer. If you look at the left side look for a red circle with a white X in the center, these are the errors. If you look at the top of the columns you will see they are titled, the column that you want is the Event, if you follow across from the red error to the Event column and right click on the number there a menu will open, click on properties and read the description. Check the ones closest to the top and let us know what the descriptions say.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I had the same problem about six months ago...computer kept rebooting...turned out all it was..... the layer of dust on the outside part of the case that covered the fan. Computer was overheating. I also checked out the inside for dust just in case.
