So i have been using this build for about a year and today my comp just shut off so iwent to turn it on it turns on the fans go around like 10 times then shut-off but all the LED S are still on and power button does nothing untill i turn the PSU off and back on then it reapeats. Randomly it starts boots to windows and dies agin. I reseated everything cleaned the CPU and applyed new thermal grease. I cleard the CMOS cache. I checked every connection on the MB.

Specs:
Asus M5A78L-M LX
AMD phenom x3
Nvidia geforce 560 TI
2xgskill 8gb RAM
1TB Muskin SSD(Only been using about 2 month)
Rosewill PSU (Tested works)

in my case it was ram that has unknown problem. i solved it with this :
1) one ram slot not functioning >>> remove the ram and use the pc with only one ram
2) a few weeks later, i tried to put the ram, in case miracle happen. yes it worked :D  lol

no, it was bad ram slot from mobo. not the ram stick. can you run just a single ram on any available slot?
