My computer will just randomly turn off. completely. Before it only happened during intensive games, and my power supply was old, so I was like okay i'll get a new psu. I replaced my 550w with a 750w corsair and the problem. still. persists. I've had about enough of this and I need help. I'm starting to suspect that it is the motherboard failing, which i just got at christmas!

motherboard is an asus m5a97 le r2.0

Kingston HyperXBlu 1x8gb DDR3 RAM < Not the issue , but your ram should be installed in matching pairs. 4gb x 2 , for Dual Channel performance.

What are your temps?

Yeah I realize but I was eager to get this build going and just ran to bestbuy and grabbed some viable DDR3

Can you suggest a program to use to monitor it while running? im in safe mode with networking right now doing a scan because I figured it could be virus related, BIOS was telling me i was hovering at about 30C for the mobo with the cpu at about 40C

I also switched out my mobo without a clean install of windows, could that be an issue?

Hi. Unfortunately I'm back.

I reinstalled windows last night and everything is up to date and the drivers are installed. I left my computer to idle just a minute ago while i went to grab a snack. Came back into the room and there it sat, turned off. It turned back on normally and came to the usual "windows did not shut down properly" screen.

Any last ideas before I get an RMA? I heard somewhere that the power switch could maybe cause it and to switch the reset button to the power pins.. I may try that if it happens again later.
