Hi Guys,

So my computer keeps randomly shutting down. It did it like once a day, but today it has already done it 3 times already. First of all let me say that my gfx card is huge and my board is micro ATX and it all hardly fits in my case. The GFX is seated in the board, however it doesnt look like it is completely fully seated. Due to the size of my case it is impossible to position it in perfectly, and screw the gfx to the back of the case, so it is hanging free in a sense. I cannot really remember it crashing a couple of weeks ago when I had my tower laid on it side, but I have stood it up now to save space, so maybe it is not as secure. However when checking reliability history, it shows it crashed in March too. Could this kind of thing lead to the comp turning itself of at random times? Please see details of hardware error below.
