So, this is a pretty non-complicated problem. I think I have narrowed it down.
So basically it's this, I try and render footage that is about 10 minutes long. About 3/4's of the way through that Adobe Premiere Pro crashes. It just shuts down, no warning. Computer is still on, and the CPU Load reduces to about 10% from 80%-90%. I think I have narrowed it down to the problem of the CPU overheating. I got speedfan, lastest version and I look at it, pumped all the fans up to 100%. It still crashed along with the CPU heating up to about 52-55 degrees Celsius. Now you might be thinking that is extremeley low, but my CPU is usually at a resting temp. of 38 celsius.
Please help, everything is updated. I think the problem is that I only have 3 fans. GPU fan, CPU fan, and a fan to suck air in. The problem lies with my case. It is so POORLY designed that with my MotherBoard it LITERALLY CANNOT FIT ANY MORE FANS IN THE CASE. Now, words cannot describe how angry I would get at the person who designed the case, but hey, you get what you pay for. Do you guys think this is purely Overheating - I'm sure if I tried hard enough I could fit another fan in there. Or something else - because I don't think it should shut down at 50 celsius.

Take the side off the computer case and put a small fan next to the computer to blow room air onto the CPU and motherboard
If that works, you know you need better cooling (maybe use the furniture brush with your vacuum cleaner... computer power off, of course... to remove any dust bunnies)
How are you with building a computer... so do you think you could move everything to a new case?
I built a computer for my wife a couple months ago http://www.pacifier.com/~jtsmith/ADOBE.HTM and with options, the case has 4 fans and her CPU runs fairly cool
55 C is very well within acceptable temps. I also would expect more than just a program crash if the CPU were overheating. You'd be seeing system level errors.
I think something else is your issue here, so...
