New Build Issue. Please Give Me Your Advice

March 30, 2013 9:25:09 AM

I recently built my first pc. On first boot, everything seemed to be working fine but then it froze after a few minutes of being in the BIOS, machine still on with fans and lights working but the screen and mouse are stuck. This is what it will consistently do after 1-5 minutes. If I begin to install windows it will start normally but a few minutes into the install the system will completely turn off.

These are my specs

Asrock 970 extreme 4 MOBO
AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE CPU
HIS Radeon 7850 2GB GPU
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2*4) RAM
Corsair HX650 power supply

I have already tried several things to fix this such as taking the motherboard out of the case and using only a single stick of RAM while testing each slot. Also the cpu is not overheating, I don't think, it shows it going to a max of 36c in the bios. What could my problem be? Which component seems most likely be the faulty piece of hardware?
