    The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

    Other information: I've had all of these components since I built the rig in september 2008 (minus the video card), I've had it overclocked from 2.4 to 3.2 for almost 3 years. I would get this error maybe once every 2 months, but I've been getting it more and more frequently to the point where now I get it once a day.

    I downclocked from 3.2 to 3.0 (it can run that stable at stock voltage), ran a slow mem-test, ran prime 95 for over 12 hours where nothing happened, and it still hard hangs. I've got a zalman heat sink which keeps it under 50C even with prime 95 running so i don't believe it's an overheating issue, there's no extra noises or loudness coming out of my case.
