Lately my computer has randomly started to shut down. I don't believe it's an overheating problem, I've opened it up look for loose connections and things of that nature. I don't get a BSOD and my computer never turns itself back on, but I can turn it back on right away. It's annoying because it occurs during gameplay, but also has happened not during games. I can't find out if it's a hardware or software problem is there some way to narrow down could be causing it?

If it makes a difference I had an i5 2500k, Radeon HD 6870, Intel BOXDH67BLB3 Motherboard, 8GB of ram, windows 8 64 bit.

My guess is the power supply. I've had that problem myself and the power supply was the culprit.

Something else I noticed if I'm playing a game I notice the game begins to lag a bit before it happens. I can pretty much know its coming when my game starts to lag a little.

check temps
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Last time it started lagging I brought up realtemp and my processor was at ~60 according to that. I saw it right before it shut down. Is it possible that program is wrong? Is there a better one to use? Also, I thought overheating caused a BSOD.

Overheating can cause a crash with no blue screen, happened to me a while ago. But my CPU temps were reaching the high 70's, so overheating might not be the issue here.

It's your powersupply, I'm almost certain.
