Before getting into the heavy analysis. At this time of the year we get any number of people with crashing PCs and the cause is usually blocked Cooling fins on the CPU.

So before you worry any more, take the side off and blow, suck or brush the insides to get rid of all that accumulated dust.

Of course it could be nothing to do with overheating but at least you'll not have to do that job for another year!
