Default Computer is shutting down when watching videos

Hi, i have recently upgraded my computer, mobo, cpu, everything. But I have a problem, when i go and watch some streams at watch-series.com my computer will randomly power off during the streaming. I have all the drivers updated, the cpu isnt overheating, its at 42'C OC, im open to any ideas, and any help is greatly appreciated

PS: It's only streaming that causes the restart, gaming,media dont do anything...

Does your harddrive make a clutch sound when you stream it?

because it might have something to do with the size, because your cache size might be that low it just want download so it refuses it and restarts.

I don't know but maybe reset IE /firefox and tell me if its that.

I mean streaming movies is like downloading 250mb

Never heard of this before now, only thing I can think of is try to run a Spy-Bot scan see what it detects;
