Solved PC has a random shutdown with no windows log/Bsod Dump

Specs: Windows 7, Corsair Vengeance 1866Mhz
My Gaming Rig is suddenly randomly cutting off and it never did this before, so I'm very nervous. It doesn't apply an event log and form what I'm seeing its not temperature related but fan related. My rig:
Processor: Intel i7 4790k - 4.4Ghz
Ram: 16GB Corsair Vengeance - 1866Mhz
Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 970 ACX 2.0 Superclocked
MotherBoard: Asus Maximus VII Hero ROG
Power Supply: Corsair 750 Watt
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H105 Extreme Performance 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler
Tower: NZXT Phantom PHAN-001BK
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium

On my tower, I have fan controllers there, and on thing that made me think its fan related is if I slightly move it at all, my pc shuts off. Yet, it will shut off without moving it, so I don't know what to do and I'm really scared, if there is any information I can provide please let me know.

Lets see if we get any clues from this.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.
If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt).
The logs are large, upload them using this, or upload to a site of your choosing. No account needed. Give us the links please.

✔ Best Answer
You've apparently narrowed the problem down to the fan controller so why not disconnect it? It's an unnecessary 'luxury' that is problematic in many NZXT cases. Your board has four 4-pin case fan headers, use them instead, along with the ASUS Fan Xpert 3 software.

"if I slightly move it at all, my pc shuts off"

Not sure whether you meant the fan or the fan controller but if you move something and the computer shuts down then you most likely have a bad connection, or maybe whatever you are moving is faulty.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I agree with riider, case fan controllers are not generally necessary with today's motherboards since the fans are set by the BIOS to run at a quiet setting normally and the speed is increased as the system heats up so you do not need to worry about doing it manually through a controller. If running them through the motherboard and removing the controller solves the problem then you are done. If you really want the manual control over your fans then you can replace the controller with a new and/or better one since you have solved (confirmed) what the problem was.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
