    First, make sure all the fans are running and clean and all heatsinks are clean.

    Check your psu voltages using System Information or Everest Free or something to ensure they are adequate.

    Make up a bootable memtest86 disk and run it for at least 10 passes.

    If those prove fruitless, pm howard_hopkinso or momok to get their help re virii .
