Our computer has been shutting off ever since we replaced the motherboard and cpu. It wasn't the motherboard, or temperature because we tried replacing the motherboard, and putting in a fan. The computer runs Windows 7, and usually shuts off during a game within 30 minutes of turning on. Here are the specifications

It's only a few months old, let me check the event viewer. I've never gotten a blue screen, just freezing or shutting off
