Thermal Shutdown

My PC runs flawless for approx 30 mins +/- a few adn them shuts off completely. It wont start backup until you wait approx 30-60 minutes. Does this sound like an overheating power supply or some other component???

Could be CPU, heatsink could be full of dust/fluff, heatsink fan could be breaking down, if you haven't done any housekeeping on your PC lately you might want to look there first...
