Had this problem with my 2500+ a few days ago. Kept shutting down with nothing showing in the event log. CPU temp was always below 55. I solved it by taking the side off the case. CPU temp is still the same but it works. Must be something else overheating that's not monitored.

have tryed that but only brought the system temp down it only took it down from over 53 to 51c cant understand it it has five case fans and a cpu fan just hought maybe a setting on the core center or bios might be wrong

Is everything nice and clean inside the case, you may find the cooling fins blocked. My AMD XP 2200 PSU threshold temp is set at 54c, right now while I am on the internet for the last hour it is 45c and the mboard 31c.
