When it crashes, it completely loses power like the cord was unplugged, no BSOD. This afternoon it was crashing every 30 minutes. I checked the temps at first and the only thing getting higher than 40C was the northbridge which was spiking to ~100C. Maybe that's the cause, but I don't know what to do about it. I also tried replacing the PSU which didn't help. Sometimes when I boot after crashing it says "A disk read error occurred. Press ctrl+alt+del to reboot." As far as I can tell though, my SSD (and other drives) are passing every test I can throw at it.

It does seem pretty likely to crash immediately after rebooting. I'm at my wit's end with this so sorry if I'm leaving anything important out.
