Hi I was reading the original thread here:
I am having a similar problem. The weather has been unusually warm here and my PC has been shutting down for no reason. I recently cleaned the entire case out, replaced the PSU (250w to 485w) and applied new thermal paste between the CPU and heatsink. After these steps, the PC still shuts down.

I am about to run SiSoftware Sandra for analysis.
However, There is something I have been thinking about - I am running everything through an APC battery backup unit. This unit is quite old, maybe 7-8 years. I am wondering if this is starting to fail.
Also, my laser printer, when turned on will sometimes cause everything to shut off. I know they draw a lot of power to start up.
Speedfan (15 minutes from the first reading) is:
Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
