if you use too much thermal Paste between cpu and heatsink, the problem will cause the cpu to overheat and yes shutting down could happen,.
I would load HWINFO and check the CPU temps. and possibly need to redo the thermal paste (nothing bigger than a pea size ifs needed)
I got temp in bios i sits between 41 and 48 degrees c i might look at buyin new ram as thats the only old thing i got in it if the paste drips down can that cause a shutdown? I built this cause my lappy to slow on some games
