    The event logs show that the system is frequently shutting down without reason.

    This can be due to overheating (use this free tool to monitor the temps: HWMonitor CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
    It can also be due to shutting the system down by holding the power button down. Have you been doing this?
    Finally, it can also be due to hardware problems. Please run these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

    Here is a screen shot of some temps and voltages using cpu id using the AMD FX 8350 cpu and the 990FX extreme 9 motherboard... I will change the motherboard, cpu and will have a legal copy of windows eight this week so more updates coming up soon

    update; I ran furmark and the first time it crashed after 5 seconds of running, the second time lasted fopr 30 seconds and crashed. Then I ran prime 95 and the screen went black but the pc was on and fans etc where running but with no heat coming from the cpu rad, gpu or power supply had to turn it off in the power supply then on and hit the power button and it sort of went of and on two times then loaded windows and was running nice. did run some tests for the SSD and the HDD and they came excelent. every type of test that involves stress of the hardware seems to crash my system but then again even in idle it crashes...more updates soon later on the week

    System shuts off while running video stress tests.
    It's most likely the video card.

    Remove the video card and try another one.
    Run Furmark to see if it crashes.

    If you don't have another video card, you'll have to purchase one from a shop that accepts returns (so you can get your money back if not needed).

    Good luck!

    Before I did that I ran Furmark again but after Bios update, I did leave it running for about 4 hours and it didn't crash however, when I ran prime 95 it crashed after few minutes

    Furmark stresses the video card

    Prime95 stresses:
    - RAM
    - memory controller (on the CPU for the AMD FX 8350)
    - CPU cache
    Blend test primarily stresses RAM

    Run MemTest86+ for a minimum of 3 passes
    Run CPU stress tests

    Huge update


    Since a while I did ran some tests and the results were bad. As of two weeks I've changed the motherboard and cpu (moved from AMD to intel) Which are Rampage IV Black Edition and i7 4820k and windows 8.1 oem legal version. PSU went out after installing windows 8.1 and is on RMA, I used another psu I had and the system is running smooth like butter had no crash, errors, blue screens nothing at all. I rooted the problem to a mere cpu problem the FX 8350 was a little off and doing instable things, also the windowes 8 I had was creating errors and the motherboard AM3+ was getting me insane... problem is fivxed and tanks for your time and patience
