Unexpected Shutdown - Event ID 6008

Can someone direct me to a good site/forum that would help me translate my Event ID logged for unexpected system shutdowns? I've been having them intermittently. I do not believe it is hardware related (i.e. overclocking) as I've stablized this machine quite extensively. Nor do I suspect a virus/trojan as I have updated NIS 2011, updated hourly, aggressive scans, etc. and really just don't surf to anything more dangerous than this site or CNN.

I suspect it's a driver problem but can't decipher the hexcode attached with the error.

Any help would be much appreciated.

CombatWombat...

1. I have run memtests/stress tests until for 48hrs straight - all iterations of Prime95 and OCCT - all good.
2. Failing sector on an HDD would cause the system to shut down? I guess I can set the disks to completely scan for bad sectors in the down time.
3. I have checked the Event Manager that is where I found the code that I would like to decipher.

Yes, in fact, it does. I have my screens to go off after 15 mins but last night changed that to never turn off so I could see whatever error might cause the shutdown.

And nothing happened.

I'm using two GTX 570s - SLI - over three monitors.

What would make that happen?
