to be clear, is there a blue screen associated with this crash? Does it reboot itself? Does it lock up? Is the HDD light solid when it crashes? Does it make it past the post screen or will it crash during post?

That would be my first guess then. Your Thermal Paste is probably pretty old, and it could be that you're not getting a good contact now.

Where abouts are you located? (Somebody might be able to provide you with a dab or two of TIM).

Andynerd, even though you got your pc to run, it's probably running way hotter than it should. I would suggest that you remove your CPU, clean the surface with isopropyl and apply some new thermal paste.
I would hate to see you in the middle of a gaming session and your pc starts doing the same thing as in your previous posts
