10.8Volts is right at the -10% level. . . . . (+12.0 ±1.2 V)/(10.8-13.2)

It is probably going into current limit when you start compiling & shuts down. . . .then returns back on line

Need to know rating of Power Supply:

Total Watts
All voltages & current ratings

what was original equipment on Computer
how much expansion did you add:
how many fans / how many drives /

when did problem begin? . . . .what was last expansion? related to start of problem . . . How old is computer . . .

What were your temps in BIOS?
What were reading of other voltages?

Power Supply will shutdown for following reasons:
Excessive Current
Excessive Temp

Either you power supply is going bad or you out grew it!! or excessive temp

Post back info
