Random shutdowns mean one of two things to me, and neither of which is the processor unless you've been volting the crap out of it. A shutdown with the BSOD is a RAM problem, a shutdown without a BSOD is power supply.

If it IS the processor, and it's ALWAYS been at stock speeds, RMA the sucker and tell Intel that it's only stable with a significant voltage increase.

this is not on the intel :p this is on my amd and the proc has been overclocked and has seen verry high volts 2.02 so im 99.9% sure its the proc and the reason i started this thread is to see if i should tell my parents that my proc died so that they would give me my intel stuff :p
