Default computer turns off

i got a asus a7n8x-e motherboard 3 months ago and it keeps overheating even when it isnt under load got 2 fans at the back of my tower and 1 at the front my cpu is running at at pleasent 47 degrees celcius. the motherboard is getting to 52 then cutting out i took it back to where i bought it but they have gone now so i am dealing directly with asus anyone else had this problem or any ideas on how to deal with it

Those temps are quite high, espcially for the mobo(or I'm assuming just the case in general)

More fans, for sure, maybe a better vented area(that's my problem...) Even a better processor fan

Well, I would think if the processor is kept cooler that the whole case would be cooler as well. That would deal more with case fans than anything.
